Answer:

Your sacrum is an arrow shaped, large bony structure located at the bottom of your spine, and connects to your pelvis (it is where your "tailbone" also known as your coccyx is located).

The inflammation could occur within a number of areas of the sacrum and we would need more information to know where it is occurring and what it means. Hopefully this gives you an idea of the structure in which this inflammation resides, though.
