I'm so sorry to hear of your suffering, you are right when you say you are too young to have all this affecting your life.  I am now 59 and have had almost identical pains, lumps and migraines for over 7 yrs. I keep asking for help but have not had any different treatment to you.  There must be somewhere those of us in chronic pain can turn. Good luck.

if you have a lump under your armpit that is painful or re`occurs-it could be hydradentis suprativia.

I am wondering if you have ever found an answer to the severity of your spinal arthritis or the lump on your back.  I have suffered with severe spinal arthritis since I was in my late 20's.  I am now 46.

I wont go into the nightmare my life has become in the past twenty years, but anyone with sever spinal arthritis knows this place.  I have had 7 surgeries to repair the discs as they herniate from the top of my neck to the bottom of my spine.  I have spondylosis, facet syndrome, scoliosis, I now wear a brace just to sit up straight, my spine no longer stron enough to support itself.  No one seems to have a reason for my arthritis, or the rapid progression.

I am responding because I have noticed the same lump that you describe.  It is a hard painful lump, that feels like a knot or bruise, about the size of a quarter, just above my pelvic bone on left side of my back.  Like you,  I have not injured my back in any way, and can not get a response from anyone, it is almost as if they cant see or feel it.

I hope that you still check this site, because I could really use an answer right now, any answer, :p  I hope that maybe you found one that you could share
