Nausea, blurred vision, limited hearing, pressure in head after fall. Need to worry?

Hi I m 20 an I just fell on stairs really bad. I ]hit with my butt almost a dozen steps covered in carpet. When I got up and I got so nauseous, my vision got blurred and limited and I was hearing as if my ears were blocked and I felt pressure in my head. This went for like 5 minutes, now I m sitting on one side and I can t feel my butt but I m sure that if I try to lay on my back it will hurt like hell...should I get worried about my temporarily reduced vision and hearing or about breaking my tailbone? I must mention that I did fractured my tailbone when I was around 12 years by falling on ice. I m waiting for your opinion at YYYY@YYYY OR YYYY@YYYY

hi there,
am dr.surendran
nice to meet you here in HCMagic
Unfortunately, once you’ve had one spinal fracture, chances are high that you’ll experience another one within a year.Because spinal fracture symptoms are often dismissed as normal back pain that comes with age, many people don’t receive proper treatment soon enough. This increases their risk for developing long-term health complications from spinal fracture, such as spine deformity.
Minimally Invasive Procedures for Treating Spinal Fracture .
other non surgical modality,
Vertebroplasty is a pain treatment for vertebral compression fractures that fail to respond to conventional medical therapy, such as minimal or no pain relief with analgesics or narcotic doses that are intolerable. Vertebroplasty, a nonsurgical treatment performed by interventional radiologists using imaging guidance, stabilizes the collapsed vertebra with the injection of medical-grade bone cement into the spine. This reduces pain, and can prevent further collapse of the vertebra, thereby preventing the height loss and spine curvature
hope helped your query
