Sore coccyx, but no falls

Pette -

Hey, I just had this problem for about a week or so now, with a sore coccyx and I didn't have any falls or anything to injure it, I'm a 20 year old male in pretty good health. It hurts the most when I try to put my shoes or socks on, sometimes in different sitting positions, but when I put pressure on it with my hands it doesn't hurt at all, it almost takes the pain away.

I'm not too sure what this could be a cause of and I was wondering if anyone has had/has the same symptoms or a cause/cure for this problem. It's really starting to hurt a lot, and the pain seems to be getting worse.

Any kind of response would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks - Pette
