has anyone else ever heard of this or know anywhere i can get more info?.i have an extra bone in my back that is quite long(or so it looked on the xrays) and extends downwards from my pelvis in my back obove my left bum cheek.one docter said it was quite common but i have yet to come across anything like it doing search after search and i dont even know the name for it. i've been suffering for over half my life now from roughly 15yrs of age with my knee/leg giving way n having a kind of fit with it progressivly getting worse over the years.i am now 31 and its now the entire left hand side of my body that fits,EVEN if i go swimming,with the more rescent change being a strange sensation through my left arm and hand,a kind of numbness and independant twitching spasms of the outer fingers on the same side...Just want to add this bone was only discovered when i was 30,despite spending 15yrs seeking help and answers and it was only after being told i must be majorly depressed and its all in my head when i specifically requested that someone check my back and this is what was found.i dont know where to turn,i have chronic pain every day of my life,neck,shoulders,upper back,lower back,hips and have also developed other problems now with my left foot along with hammer toes from scrunching my foot to walk,aswell as fallen arches in both feet,oh and my right shoulder has an impairment that causes an impindgement(whatever that is).i have 4 young boys to keep up with and feel so frustrated and tired out! any advise welcome,please.
