I have Ulcerative Colitis and hemoroid issues AND get tail bone area pain when either is flared or active.  I don't know if you have either of these issues but you may want to see a gastrointeroligist for your concern/issue especially if it is really bothersome.  Otherwise, you can try bath soaks with epson salts---I found that to help some temporarily.
