Coccyx pain without trauma

Virginia -

With no trauma at all (to my knowledge) I have this pain in my coccyx region. I can live with it as its not too bad, it started a few months ago. It hurts when I sit on certain surfaces and hurts especially when I stand, but not all the time. The pain is like a bruised feeling or like a sore, and doesn't hurt when palpated.

I have been sleeping on a not so comfortable sofa bed for the last seven months, I thought that somehow that may have caused this. I am baffled at this sudden onset of discomfort.
