I got an MRI of my back and one thing that showed up is an old/healed T12 compression fracture that I didn’t know I had. No accident that would’ve caused this that I can think of. I found a study that showed vertebral compression fractures are more common in younger (not elderly) people who have hEDS than in the general public. I’m 41. Thinking I should get my bone density checked. Has anyone else had a VCF and did you experience symptoms? I looked at a pic of the nerve pathways that come out of T12 and it looks a lot like my pain pattern in my low back and hip. Going back for follow up with spine doc soon but I have a feeling he’ll say it’s healed so I shouldn’t have symptoms. Curious about others experiences.
