This is Dr. David

have you had constipation? small hard stools? small hard bits of stool or constipation or bits of seeds can get caught in your bowel wall if you have diverticulosis and cause pain there.

prior repeated falls on your coccyx can cause pain there.

severe weight loss can cause loss of fat and muscle in your butt and make your coccyx more sensitive as well.
