tailbone pain and leg swelling

After giving birth to my son, I had a lot of tailbone pain and I was told it would heel. NO x-rays or anything was done after I had my son. I had occational pain and swelling of my left calf, ankle and foot over the past five years but nothing really bad. But now I have gone back to school and I sit a lot and my tailbone hurts all the time and my left leg really swells and sometimes my right leg will swell too. Can you tell me what is causing this and what can be done to fix it?
