I have a similar problem. Whenever I have to sit down (indian style or just on my bottom) on a hard floor I really notice the pain. I'm 19 and haven't had any injuries that should have caused this. Once I stand up the pain remains ussually for several hours. Sometimes, if I have been sitting for a while on a hard floor I am unable to sleep on my back that night.

And now, just in the past 24-36 hours I have a swollen lump at the very bottom of my tailbone/top of my bottom. It's not very large and doesn't feel like it contains any liquid or blood.. I believe it's just swollen tissue. But it's extremely uncomfortable to sit down. I'm considering seeing the doctor but I'm a college student... money is tight.

Any ideas or comments?
