Hello and welcome to HCM
The presence of fractures in the spine without any history of trauma is alarming. It has to be investigated further.

It can cause distant metastasis.
The fractures in the spine can e due to metastasis of the medullary carcinoma to the spine.
You need some investigations -bone scan or PET scan to know the character of the lesion.
In case metastasis is present chemo- and/ or radiotherapy may be required. This work up will be better done an oncology unit.
The dosage of thyroxine
) may have to be modified over period of time depending whether symptoms of hypothyroidism
are present or not.
Thanks and take care
