Hello Taape, I have a wedge fracture at T10 and this has been very painful. From what I have read we can sometimes get compression fractures without pain, the main symptom is loss of height.

I understand these fractures don't exactly heal and that if we get more, we can become stooped over and sometimes even get a dowagers hump! [This has ALL scared the **** out of me)!

I too have back pain, degenerative disc problems for years and also Polymyalgia Rheumatica for the last 2 1/2 years. The Prednisole I take for PMR has possibly hastened the osteoporosis loss.

I would be very greatful if you could let us know what you are told after the MRI.
