Patient :Right above my butt on my lower back, I have what feels like two bones that sit side by side that stick out. What is it?
I noticed it when I was in Jr. High and I had P.E. class, I had to do sit ups and every time i went up I could feel it grind on the floor. It did hurt also i can't sit for long without back pain. I have been diagnosed with scoliosis but i feel this is not part of my scoliosis, I could be wrong though.
Thank you for writing to us.
Scoliosis affects the curvature of the back. Since you have it, you must be affecting the lower back when you do a sit up. This is what is causing the pain in the lower back and the protruding type of bones.
Here is what I recommend. See a Doctor and get the requisite treatment. Hope this will help you. All the best
