Bumps on lower spine after fall. X-ray normal. Trouble?

Hello, I feel out of our 5th wheel in 2007, I went to doctor ect, nothing was wrong. I m 50 and clean house so back is used all the time. However this last May I slipped on a wet tile floor and sense them the pain is getting worse plus it is stopping me from doing things. I now have two bumps on my lower spine like they are pocking out. I m I in big trouble? After I feel I had a X ray and they saw nothing wrong.

Thank you for posting your query.

First of all, I would like to reassure you that your symptoms do not suggest a serious problem.

The most likely reason for your symptoms could be lumbar spondylitis and muscle spasm at the lower back.

Treatment would be with physiotherapy, regular exercises, and use of analgesics such as ibuprofen or diclofenac.

If symptoms persist, you could get MRI of the lumbar spine done to get more details regarding the problem.

Wishing you good health,
