On Thursday 17th July (10 days ago), I slipped and fell down a short flight of stairs, landing on my bottom/lower back. It jarred it at the time but seemed ok. Over the next few days, the pain got worse and was sore whenever I stood up/ sat down, and sometimes when sat in certain positions with pressure on my coccyx. There is no visible bruising, as far as I can make out myself, anyhow. It's remained at about the same level of pain (5 out of 10) since then but because I barely notice it when standing, walking and lying down, I have been ignoring it.
I rode my bike today, which was immediately uncomfortable, but as I had things to do and no alternative form of transport, ignored it as it was still far from incapaciating. Then I had to emergency brake when a car pulled out without indicating... It now hurts quite a bit more, even when just sitting down, but it's a constant ache rather than a sharp pain.
Should I go to the doctor about it? Would this be considered urgent? Having read up about it, it seems all will be suggested is I take painkillers.
