Bounced down the stairs

Ruth -

I slipped on the stairs and fell down. Before I could catch myself, I had literally bounced on my butt down about seven more stairs.

This morning my tailbone hurts so badly, that I cannot get up once I've been sitting, and I cannot sit without going down really slowly.

I hope this will clear up by itself, or have I really injured my tailbone? It's mostly on the right side.....

Thanks for your help.
