Fell on tailbone, horrible pain, difficult to sit or stand. Is it a bruised tailbone or something else?

I am 18 years old, I fell on my tailbone last night. The pain is extremely bad. I cant sit, lay down or stand, without being in some sort of pain. I also tried to go to the bathroom.. I couldn't sit comfortably and I had to grab on the the railing when getting up (a ton of pain). Is this a bruised tailbone? What should I be doing?

You fell down and your buttocks touched the ground. Since then you have severe pain not able to sit, lay down, stand or squat. You need immediate MRI of lumbar bones along with Lumbo Sacral Joint. Even blood collection also will be revealed. If it is absolutely normal nothing to worry. Rest by lying flat without pillows along with pain killing tabs and muscle relaxant and minimum sedation in the night is more than enough.
best wishes.
