I Hurt Myself Falling on my Hip or Tailbone.please suggest me soon

Hurt Myself Falling on my Hip or Tailbone. Need Advice Quickly l I fell the other night onto a metal bed frame, directly onto my hip/tail bone and needless say it was a very unreal pain. It is swollen in the area and my leg has gone numb a few times. This happened about a day and a half ago. Did I just pinch a nerve and if so what should I do for it?

Hi I had surgery about a year ago to remove 2 skin tags on my rectum and since then I have had pain in my tailbone. I don t know if it s just a coincidence or if it is related. The pain seems to come more when I sit too long on a hard surface. BTW I am 51 years old and peri menopausal.
