Compression fracture of L1 vertabra ( anterior part ) Never before I got this body pain 8 months ago did I ever complain about or see a doctor about any problem in my lower back. I also have not had any traumatic injury or fall that I can remember that could justify this. Has anyone else had something like this happen to them with fibro? I am just over 50 and a male, and doctor said this usually happens with traumatic injury to older women. I had been telling my PC for a few months that I had extreme pain in my left weg and much more weakness there than my right leg and also complained of left buttock pain. he would alsways just not saying anything about ti...said maybe I needed to walk more having been on my back a lot.
