In brief: Coccyx bruise or fx
Most likely you bruised or fractured your coccyx, or tail bone.
It is rarely a surgical problem, but it can take weeks or months to resolve. Generally, we recommend warm water sitz baths and over-the-counter analgesics like acetaminophen, Ibuprofen or naproxen. If it hurts to sit, buy a coccyx cushion. If the pain is severe, see an orthopaedist.
