Situation - Fell on ice backwards 8 th January 2010 - hurt cocxycs - small v wedge T2 vertebrate, whiplash, head injury
Question - I am still giddy when I get up / bend over / turn quickly / with strange sensations in my head - my original ct scan and mri scan a few months later show nothing! I have had neck excercises with a physio and my cocxycs syill hurts.
Well, sounds to me like the dizziness may be from when you hit your head. Also, while the coccyx is usually just left to just heal on its own, it's the structures above it, the lumbosacral spine, that can REALLY get pushed around on impact. I have pictures of my lower back, and a supposedly good orthopedist read them at my request, and couldn't find anything. BUT many months later, I did some reading on the alignment of that part of the spine, found out about "Ferguson's lines," which turns out my S-1, L-1 vetebrae are pushed WAY too far back, it's no wonder my tailbone area hurts. So, even tho your original scans came up okay, I think you should seek a neurologist, tell him about your dizzy spells and your painful tailbone area, and ask for new scans and evaluation.
