Possible osteoporotic wedge fractures
Hi, Thanks for you query.
can be commonly referred from the lower back and so the problem may be isolated to your lower back but could be felt in the hip also.
I note from your past medical history that you have osteoporosis
in your spine and so I think the 1st course of action after a thorough history and physical from your Dr to help confirm the location of your problem would be to get X-rays and possibly an MRI scan of your spine to ensure that you do not have any osteoporotic wedge fractures that could be accountable for your pain. Routine blood work is also often important in the initial investigations.
The MRI scan is extremely sensitive at showing any abnormalities in your spine.
Antiinflammatory medication, massage
are often helpful for lower back pain
but I think in your case in light of your past medical history it would due important to have this further investigated.
