I Have Bruising Along Base Of My Back Doctors Can't Explain It Very Sore To Touch Already In 24/7 Pain

I have one certain spot directly on the spine, close to wear my bra crosses my back. I explained it like a deep bruise that has a knot. It comes and goes. I get really worried about it.

I have had this happen also. My doctor couldn’t explain it either. Mine goes away pretty quick too it’s really weird. I hope you are able to find relief. 🥰

I have no idea but never rule out a blood clot.

I have bruising and swelling along the base of my back.
I have always connected it to my spinal fusion/decompression L4 - S1). Over the past few months I’m not so sure as the discolouration/bruising is so evident.
It’s also hard to examine with this illness as I find it difficult to look at my lower back lol
Epidural fat was mentioned in an early MRI - unsure if this explains it though... I’m a little sceptical
I really hope the pain subsides soon for you soon x

Me too... They have a hard pea size knot in the middle... They took a long time to heal... They're sore to the touch too.
