I always thought that the pain in my joints, especially in my hands and knees was just part of aging. Now I don't know if the pain is from osteo or just age

I have been diagnosed with 2 compression fractures one of T7 and L4 over a year ago, T7 still causes me pain especially when I'm on my feet for extended periods of time and when I perform house cleaning jobs such as vacuuming and mopping floors.

Don’t sit for too long without getting up and moving about. Otherwise, I get too stiff to move! Rigor mortis.

When have fracture, does dr do x-ray or MRI to know for sure? Or do they assume cause of pain? How did u discover u had fracture....thru tests & Drs diagnosis?
You’re a physician will do a x-ray. He has to before you can see an orthopedic specialist.
