Party went painfully wrong

Gemma, Ireland -

The damage was done to my coccyx one night before we went out. My friend decided it would be great fun to pull me down the stairs. However, he accidentally fell and pulled me with him and I fell with him, missing stairs on the way and landed full force on my coccyx.

Felt the pain straight away and cried my eyes out. However did not feel the extreme pain to the next morning. It is ok when I walk about. However, every time I sit down since I find the pain, and then it gets so sore when I try to get up. It gets worse as the day goes on. Is there a chance it could be broke?

Yours faithfully Gemma, Ireland
