Hi Anon,

It's completely normal. Some of us have more "cushioning" around our coccyx (or tailbone) so we don't feel any pain while we're sitting. However, some people do feel pain/discomfort when they sit for too long because the bone is feeling the pressure. You can purchase a coccyx support cushion to help relieve the pressure and allow you to sit longer without any discomfort.
