I am a generally healthy 25 year old female.

About three months ago, i went to the hospital and got checked for appendicitis. When they did the CT scan, they found "non-expansile sclerotic bone lesions" scattered throughout my spine and pelvis. I was sent to do a bone scan. The scan showed multiple areas of abnormal tracer localization along my spine. Next, they had me do an MRI. The MRI showed "abnormal signal intensity" from several locations of my spine and sacrum.

Here's the weird part, all blood work done in the past three months are normal. I also had a needle biopsy done on my spine and the results negative for cancer. My Oncologist also spoke to the doctor who did the biopsy and he said my bones had normal density.

Has anyone heard of anything like this? I also found a rare hereditary bone disorder called osteomesopyknosis. I know that my mother also had to get scanned because her bones showed abnormalities. But all she can remember is that they explained to her that "its just the way her bones grow". I can only find limited information on this disorder and i was hoping someone somewhere can shed some light on the situation.
