I fell down the stairs (back first) and now having headaches?
I just woke up and I was walking up the stairs and I felt dizzy and my vision was blurry (and I was having a tingling sensation, I often get these) anyways I rested my head on the railing then all of a sudden I fell backwards and hit my head on the floor. I don't even remember how I fell. I just remeber resting my head and then opening my eyes finding myself on the floor. My mom said she heard me yell then I fell but I dont remember that. Anyways, Im now having headaches and my tailbone hurts whenever I bend over etc.. Should I go to the doctor to get this checked?
                     




Paytn:)
Yes. You probably have a concussion and a bruised tail bone.

You SHOULD see your doctor, Yes... The dizzy, tingling sensation you describe often feeling could very well be what the medical world calls 'auras', which often occur right before an epileptic seizure. Also, the yell your mother heard from you is a common part of that aura (in some people),... A siezure could also easily explain why you don't remember how you fell...

When a person has a tonic-clonic / grand mal siezure, they not only lose consciousness, but all of their body's muscles at first become rigid, and in so doing I have seen the person's head thrown back, & then their rigid body fell over backwards, the back of their head 'breaking' their fall onto concrete (he needed stitches)... YES, you need to be checked out, and discuss ALL of your symptoms with the doctor, not just the symptoms occuring since your fall!

Use of the Amino Acid 'Taurine', for Treating Epilepsy

I have a history of epilepsy, and find that the natural method of treatments are both safer & more effective for me. Be careful about riding bikes, walking in traffic or on stairs, or driving, until your doctor has thoroughly checked you out & OK'd you for doing such activities alone.
