Where do I go from here?

I'm 17 years of age and have been experiencing coccyx pain for around 5 months now. I've been to the doctor's to be told that I have coccydynia. I was fully expecting this, much thanks to your website! However, over the past few weeks the pain has subsided slightly and I've been able to get on with things much more easily.

But now the pain is back and I have no doubt that it will return to the extent it previously was. Is this normal for the pain of cocydynia to come and go? I was prescribed 400 mg Ibuprofen for it which didn't touch me at all, so what is likely to come next? Please help as I'm rather worried!!
