Fractures: Normal bone density with four vertebral fractures does not make sense. The bone is my specialty. Hopefully you have had the proper tests done and treatment started. If not you must do so immediately. There some women, about 15 over the last few years while pregnant or 6 months after birth who also have unexpected fractures. See an endocrinologist and orthopedist.
