I have another compression fracture in my back. T 7 and my muscles in my back hurt really bad. It was hard to stand up and bending over was the only relief. Tried pain meds they don’t work at all. You have to take too many! I have been using heating pad in the morning and stretching a lot. By the afternoon it is better and finally went to work yesterday. It is the weirdest feeling that is for sure. I am starting on some bone supplements for 6 months to see if I can improve my Ed a scan. Just have to hope it helps. I know he you feel.

I had the rib pain when I originally had my compression fracture. The dr told me it was radiating pain. It was bad, has gotten better as it healed.

One last thing, go on google to inspire and put in your rib crushing question along with Kyphoplasty. There is a lot of valuable information on that site. Also what supplements are you taking? AlgaeCal with Strontium is good be sure your D levels are high, magnesium and boron. I know this whole thing is overwhelming, but the right supplements can really build your bones. Good luck!

I also tried Lyrica and after 3 days became very depressed and knew it was the meds so quit. i tried it again for a week and felt no different in pain but was so depressed so quit it for good. Tried as many supplement as I could find that might work and changed as much in life style -Like increased some sleep and not to sleep on my sides and more on my back and tried to keep stress down and slowed down at home so I save my self just for work tilll I retire . I meditate as much as I can remember too and very little walking as it increases the pain and also orthirics in shoes and keep changing my shoes up for new ones
