More tests: Start by seeing an orthopedic spine/back specialist for further evaluation, probable MRI or cat scan. The possibilities for her confined pain probably lie in improper diagnosis or insufficient treatment at this point.

Yes: If pain has persisted for six months then further work up is needed to make a diagnosis. A spine doc or orthopaedic surgeon could examine and order any necessary test(s). It may possibly be an intrapelvic problem and not the coccyx itself.
