I had my first ruptured disc at age 28. I had no problems before that. I started with the other problems at age 46. In 2013 I had a laminectomy and 4 months later had a fall and fractured L2-5 and my coccyx. A few months later I fractured T12. I had kyphoplasties to repair the fractures. A week ago I fractured L3. I had a CT scan and am waiting to find out if they are going to do another kyphoplasty.
