My tail bone hurts when sitting for more than fifty minutes.?

In brief: Move around
Our tail bone has minimal padding over it (no muscle and little fat) and activities like sitting can cause pressure on the skin and bone, giving you pain.
Use a pressure relieving pad such as a memory foam pad when you need to sit for long periods of time. It is not dangerous, but definitely uncomfortable! good luck!
