Hello Anon

Thank you for writing. You have my sympathies - I know tailbone pain !

Assuming nothing has been broken, sit on a "doughnut" - a plastic ring where your tailbone will fit through. A child's swimming tube will work.

Icing the area will help, as can using a heating pad - do whatever helps the most or alternate the treatments.

Something like Advil or Tylenol can also help to relieve pain. And time is the best healer. It can take a couple of weeks.

I hope you feel better soon-
