Hurt tailbone

While I was playing volleyball i fell into a sitting position and hurt my tail bone. Its been a week since that happened and yesterday i bent down to put on my shoes and it hurt very badly. Currently I am in pain but the pain is intolerable but it doesn't hurt that much either. It feels more like soreness. Do I have to get an X-ray? Shots?

I do recommend that you see your Dr. They may want to take x rays to see if you've broken your tail bone. You could have hurt your back as well with the way you landed.
