I have, on the rare occasion, experienced an extreme pain as though i had hit my tailbone. it comes on with no cause and lasts a few minutes.

Concerning: Tailbone pain can arise from trauma, infection, and inflammation from the bowel or back. You will need examination by a physician and blood work to know more, and to decide on any treatment needed. If the pain in brief or related to a minor injury, you may safely monitor the situation. If it interferes with sitting, sleep, or work, i would not delay.
