We welcome to the Chronic Pain forum!
It looks like you have already received some very good advice by a couple of our members.
I see you are taking poll at the top of the page here "Do compression fractures cause pain" Certainly compression fractures cause pain, and can be treated successfully. There is a procedure where thy cement the fracture, and I have heard that the relief is almost instant in some cases. Have you looked into this, or has your Dr talked to you about
this? I'm guessing you suffer from osteoporosis or osteogenesis and may be causing the fractures? At any rate, it sounds like your back is a mess, and I sympathize with you. We have a ton of members here with these same problems, and I'm sure they will be happy to share their experience and suggestions with you.
Were glad you found this forum, and I'm sure you will find the members warm and friendly. Feel free to visit us anytime!
