I hurt my tail bone 10 years ago. Just recently it has been hurting so bad that it is difficult to sit down at times. Could there be a serious problem?

In brief: Pilonidal cyst

It could be due to a pilonidal cyst, which is a cyst containing hair or skin debris that forms around your tailbone area, which can get infected and very tender when sitting down.
You should see a doctor for evaluation and treatment.
