Hi all back sufferers! My Story of back injury. I fell off the steps, onto the cement floor of the garage and landed on my back about 18 months ago. I blacked out for a few seconds ( maybe more), but knew as I hit the floor that a hurt myself..... Pain was so severe that I couldn't even cry. My back was one mass of pain! After several MRI's, a fracture of t12 was determined. I went to our doctor who concurred . After a horrible experience in the back brace, 3 months on bed rest, and 6 months later the dr. said that that my back would not ever be 100 0/0. Well, now I have terrible pain in the same area but it also feels as if there is a bump/ bulge/ knot around the t12 area. Don't know if the is normal or not. Any ideas.
