In brief: Exam - bone scan

May simply have fractured your tailbone.
Have your physician check for sacral fracture. If in doubt, obtain a bone scan which will confirm the diagnosis. Unfortunately, if this is a sacral fracture, it may take a while to heal. May qualify for a sacroplasty depending on the findings.

In brief: Lumbar spine xray

You could of fractured your coccyx.
Treatment is usually conservative - getting a donut pillow to sit on can take the pressure off the painful area. If it's not contraindicated, anti-inflammatories like Ibuprofen can help as well.
