I am a 14 year old girl, and i fell on my coccyx 2 months ago, and i have been going to several doctors and i have been given codine, paracetamol, ibuprofen and co dydramol to help the pain, but none of them have helped. I have been getting lots of side effects lately and i don't know whether some of them are coming from the tablets or its just trauma from my coccyx but anyway here they are. I am losing my taste, getting nightmares, getting black dots in my eyes everywhere i look, feeling weak, pulses in my legs and pins and needles, tingling down the legs, weird feeling when touched on my legs compared to my arms, red hot knees, and big pulses on my wrists and pins and needles in my hands. Yes i know, alot. I am really scared and I cry alot about it. After a month of trying to sort stuff out with the doctors where i live, eventually i moved to the doctors where my dad lives and they are very helpful. The doctors here seems to understand me more, and are helping quite a bit. Last time i saw my gp she was very worried about me and said for me to go to a and e right away to see an orthopedic because she was very concerned. This was last night by the way. Next week i have an appointment with the orthopedic team at london white chapel who work with children. MY QUESTION IS will the mri be able to show nerve damage... ? thankyouView Thread
