In brief: Depends

Tailbone pain or coccydynia is the most common "coccyx disorder".
This is usually the result of trauma, anatomy, or poor sitting posture. There are usually no long term consequences other than pain if left untreated.

In brief: Coccydynia

Coccyx problems usually cause coccydynia (pain in the coccyx).
This can be treated by several means. You should see a pain specialist. If all treatments fail then a surgeon may be able to help - but this should be the lest resort.
