Protruding bumps on spine. Pain when arching back or sleeping. Concerned

For a couple of months now I have felt like a couple of protruding bumps on my spine . It doesn t hurt real bad. I thought at first that maybe I pulled something while exercising. But it still is there and will only hurt when I arch my back or sleep on my back. I m really only concerned cause it has been about 2 months. What could this be? I thought maybe arthritis? I am 55

Thank you for posting your query.

It is difficult to come to a diagnosis without actual examination. However, your problem does not seem to be a serious one.

You would agree that the diagnosis depends on whether the bumps are soft or hard, single or multiple, painful or painless, increasing in size or not, etc.

I request you to get back with more details to enable me give a better answer.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
