Hi I am new to this but need some support. Have had incredible new upper back pain that no one would acknowledge. Finally after 3 Drs I had an MRI and the results were an acute compression fracture at T6. I did not have an injury and thought I was too young for osteoporosis. Just wanted to get some feedback, advice. can't take the pain!!

what is your doctor going to do now that you know you have a compression fracture. Does you MRI state that you have ostoeporosis. I think you should be evaluated by a good specialist.
