I did some butt lifting exercises and now i feel discomfort and pain in my tailbone and butt muscles. Why?

Sounds quite normal.: If you do any activity, that you don't do regularly, you will be hurting for 4-7 days, as you exercised some muscles that you don't exercise, beyond the regular day to day level of activity.
