I have had an Xray 3 years ago which my Dr says shows me to have a wedge fracture [lower down I think he said] and now, after not much help or treatment at all, I am having increasing pain in the lower part of my back.
If I am standing for 25 secs or so it starts to feel painful like I've been picking up heavy weights. Also whenever I walk [or try] I am stooped forward and it is also painful. This has progressively worsened over the last 5 years.
The esteemed medical service first decided I had diabetes, tested me and then said it was borderline blah blah; then they sent me for a scan for osteoporosis and the result said positive[significant] hip and back.[they also told me I wouldn't get back pain from these so???]
I'm not really bothered about these last two things [real or not] but I can't get any info on whether anything can be done for my back pain and the stooping in particular..
If it's relevant,I'm 55 years old, male and used to be fairly active type.
