Hi everyone. When I was 18 I was very insecure due to my height. I am 5'5 and especially in high school it really bothered me. I began to use shoe lifts that gave me an extra 1-2 inches. This was uncomfortable but I wore them daily. I continued this well into college and my senior year of college I developed back pain in between my shoulder blades. I do remember lifting something with my lifts on and I remember I thought to myself can this hurt my back? I went to the internet and googled can "high heels hurt back" and things similar to this. I began to hurt shortly after. The pain continued for weeks but it did go away when I took the lifts out. I finally went to see my uncle who is a chiropractor. He took an x-ray and found I had evidence of a wedge compression fracture. I believe it was two actually. They were healed and he could tell it happened a while back. He didn't seem to concerned and said it happens often to teenage boys who lift weights(which I did). I squated and deadliftted often. Never very heavy which kind of scared me and made me think I could have osteoporosis. i stopped using the lifts daily and this helped. I also soon came across the John Stossil 20/20 video. In the video he says he had a fracture in his back, it made me feel less scared. I read sarno's book and my pain essentially went away for 5 years. It would hurt occasionally but was better for the most part. A few weeks ago I remember doing dishes and I felt a little twinge of pain and instead of shrugging it off like usual I freaked out and starting googling things like osteoporosis. I freaked myself out. over the next few days the pain progressively got worse. I remember going to the gym and the over head press machine wasn't adjusted correctly. I pushed up and it hurt my back. This further freaked me out. It's now been two weeks and the pain is constant. I went to two different chiropractors and they said it happens with old compression fracture injuries don't worry. I even called my uncle he said stop freaking out you don't have osteporosis. I have always ate healthy and it does not run in my family and i'm only 26. The week the pain came back I was very stressed with work and life. Should I be worried? Or should I shrugg this off as TMS?
