Have screws and pins put in lower back Vertebra, back started to hurt when exercise. Have I broken the screw?

I have had 4 screws, 2 pins, and a new vertabre put in my lower back 6 years ago in July. I did some yoga classes, and the last one was on Tuesday, and my back started to hurt on Sturday. I started a new job and it intails some lifting. after 4 days of this, while lying on my back, on the floor, I put my hands under my lower back and hurd and felt grinding. Can I have loosend or broken the screw? I m a 67 year old female in very good health.

welcome to HCM
Yes due to yoga by the twisting any or uneven pressure effect could be the cause of displacement of disc. Yes there might be loosen and when it give pressure to spinal nerve you feel pain. As the unset is sudden and just after a few days of yoga postural movement so those chances are maximum. But if it would have been a long days gradual origin then we should think for others factors like osteoporosis or any any spinal growth etc. The exact cause can be found out by CT Scan of whole spine.
Thank you

Though there is remote possibility of screw getting lose after so many years but being female and at age of 67 in some cases have weak bones. It is better to get ivestigated. Many a times it is just psychological.
