Lower back pain after fall. Diagnosed with RA. Difficulty walking straight

In early December I had a bad fall from the bathroom floor. I slipped on water into the next room. Since then my lower back/bone has been causing constant pain that prevents me from walking straight. The therapist said my bones are showing signs of scleosis. I've been diagnose for 2yrs. with RA; just recently released from hospital on 4/2/13. I would like to walk again; but because of the severe constant pain I have to stop requently. Why can't I walk straight?

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the back after the fall could be related to an injury in the area of the spine. You need to get an MRI scan of the area done to find out the exact cause and the extent of injury that you have suffered.
