hi, after a rear impact crash a few weeks ago i have been left with terrible back pain. also, half way down my back (where the pain is) i have quite a large lump/ step out on my spine; it feels like its two bones long. i keep getting i stabbing pain with movement from near the top of my spine down to my right knee. this varies from a twinge to an hour or so long, i just have to hold still until it settles as it really is too painful to move at all. i am waiting for an MRI but i just want to know whats wrong.
any ideas will be much appreciated, i am only 21 and worried that my back pain will persist through out life
