Re: Pain in tailbone?? Cyst?
A donut pillow may not give you what you need in that you want to suspend your tailbone when sitting. Perhaps a "tush cush" would be better because the cutout is directly under your tailbone. Check it out on the web by searching on "tush cush." You'll find lots of hits.
Several months back, I thought I had a pilonidal cyst due to the type of pain you describe, which became more intense every day. Fortunately, a surgeon was able to say with certainty that I did NOT have a cyst. She recommended a tush cush and a new, softer chair at work. I am 90% pain free.
That said, pilonidal cysts are nothing to sneeze at. They never go away on their own. So, if you have a cyst, you must get it removed, you must follow doc's orders for proper healing. It will only get worse, until you end up in ER in such pain you'll allow anyone to operate. Don't wait for that, please. Do yourself a favor and have yourself checked out.
