People that have pain at their "bottom" -- which is worsened by sitting, e.g. putting pressure on the area -- could have inflammation of the coccyx, or the "tailbone".

Often times, the treatment for this is simply to get a better padded seat, such as a cushion shaped like a "donut" - with a hole in the middle - that can help relieve the pressure off of this area.

Of course -- speaking with your doctor about this and getting an exam will help in the diagnosis, but read the information above to see if that helps you.
