Anyone ever have any tailbone problems? Since I lost weight my tailbone is killing me! It's all inflamed.

Could be that your spine was compressed for so long (being over-weight) and now your spine has loosened up and your tailbone is sitting a whole different way, your body isn't used to it..? Personally I would take Ibuprofen for a few days and see if that helps. If it doesn't you should ask your doctor.

It can be sciatic nerve problem sometimes which a chiropractor can help with.  I have occasional tailbone pain but I'm pregnant lol.

It's getting so bad I think I'm going to have to see the doctor. The pain is making me sick. My whole body hurts now.

It never hurts to have a doctor look at it for a diagnosis but they might just give you pain pills or reccomend invasive treatment when you don't need it.  Good luck!

There's a cyst that can form right near your tail bone, my sister had problems for years where she'd have to get it drained and packed. Hurt her like hell. Look it up
