    Have had lower back pain and "thrown my back out" muscle spasms on a regular yearly basis, now have pain if I stand too long or sit too long (I am a receptionist) anyway had xray of spine thoracic and an X-ray of lumbosacral. My results were: minimal reverse s-shaped scoliosis of the thoraco lumbar spine. There is very mild multilevel ventral endplate spurring of the thoracic spine as well as minimal endplate spurring at L3-L4, all compatible with minimal degenerative disk disease. There is also the suggestion of very mild intervertebral disk height loss throughout the lumbar spine, also suggestive of miltilevel mild degenerative disk disease. Would this be causing me the pain and is there anything I can do, my vitamin D levels are extremely low and have been trying to boost with 50,000 a week and have had two different foot fractures in last two years?
