Does anyone out there have polycystic ovarian syndrome? If yes, has it contributed to your back pain?
I don't have that, but I do have endometriosis, which often causes a lot of pain from cysts, among other things. It is a possibility - though remote - that a cyst somewhere could be causing back pain. But if you go to a gyno who specializes in said problem, he or she can usually rule that in or out for sure. In your case it sounds like it has nothing to do with it, but you should get your gyno doctor to back you up on that, if your case involves a lawsuit against the person who hit you.
It was a car accident that caused my back problems too - it was very obvious in my case - but still I had to go to my endo specialist after a large cyst in my ovary was spotted during an MRI for my back. My back doctors told me I had to go see my gyno to get his opinion as to whether it factored into the back pain. It didn't, he was sure of that. But he was also sure that the cyst had to be taken out ASAP, or I was going to end up in the emergency room.
