I have mentioned this problem as a side in another thread, but I am concerned about my weird-looking spine. All five of my lumbar vertebrae stick out and are clearly visible when you look directly at my back. When I look at other womens' spines I just see a thin indented line down their back from neck to tailbone. Mine is normal looking until I get to the lumbar, and the line seems to "split" around the vertebrae and meet back up after them at my butt crack. I get rough patches over the bumps of the vertebrae from sitting in hard chairs. If I don't do my ab workout on a thick matt or ball my skin gets abraded right off in little circular patches over the vertebrae. The skin often bruises for whatever reason.
I will post a picture if that is helpful- need to recharge my camera battery.
I don't have constant pain, but I do get intermittant low back pain. This was treated with Motrin in Valium when I was military. No one wanted to approach the "anomaly" or even look at it. I just dropped it and delt with the discomfort by trying to build more muscle because I don't want to destroy my body with 800 mg Motrin and freakin Valium.
any help or recognition of similar problems would be welcome. I can accept if this is just a normal appearance that not everyone has- in fact that would be great to hear.
