Hi, Colleen and Kelsey. I am a male 74 years old. I just joined and posted in reply to another tinnitus sufferer. I had a spinal fracture, which has a proper name but it escapes me at the moment, about two years ago from improper lifting a very heavy object, and due to my doctors receptionist forgetting to make the appointment for me with a surgeon in a hospital for spinal surgery plus other delays not in my control resulted in a five month delay between the injury and surgery. He did a procedure of injecting a substance which hardened and lifted the affected spinal area to its correct distance between vertebra, but I have been getting random pains in various areas of my back, when I bend over to do something on one side of my back in the soft area between my ribcage and hip bone, up from there in another area on the same side alongside my backbone when I do something else, and a couple of other places, and these pains get worse the longer I do whatever I’m doing. I sit in my recliner for 15-20 minutes and the pain is gone but when I resume the activity, such as washing dishes, or doing something down on one knee, or bending over to pick things up off the floor, the pain comes back. Painkillers of any kind doesn’t touch it. Aspirin works for a back ache but doesn’t affect this stuff.
