Coccyx injury and headaches?

While sledding with my daughter this January I injured my tailbone. About three days after the injury I began to get headaches. After about 1-1/2 months after the accident my tailbone felt better, however the headaches remained. I have seen my doctor, Chiropractor, eye doctor and dentist for the headaches. I told my doctor about the injury to the tailbone, but he didn't pay much attention to it. I still have some discomfort when I sit, however the headaches have been with me every day for five months now. Has anyone every heard of an injury to the coccyx causing daily headaches?

Note from Jon Miles: Some other people have said there seemed to be a connection between their coccyx pain and headaches. Put headache into the search box at the top of the page to see their stories.
