In brief: Related possibly

People with irritable bowel syndrome often develop myofascial pain or fibromyalgia.
The pain in your tailbone may be a manifestation of myofascial pain or a similar condition like fibromyalgia, although pain is more widespread in fibromyalgia. It may respond to healthy nutrition, physical therapy, sleep, aerobic exercise and/or home exercises. See your doctor about it if it persists.
