Worried because it could be something serious

I am 18 years old male and 6 days ago I was sitting on my chair a little weird and my tailbone started to hurt. I have never had this pain before so I thought nothing of it. Right now I am sitting on a couple pillows and it still hurts when I sit down but I can get comfortable.

Reading all these stories has really been worrying me because it could be something serious. My mom wants me to go to the doctor but I don't like the idea of some guy looking at my butt and finding something serious.

Please if anyone has any advice please email me.
