yes, the xray result just revealed that i have an inborn defect...i didnt know that until i fell from a monoblock chair and had my xray result. and yes it's spina bifida occulta, the mild type..but i have also sacralization of lumbar 5. according to the doctor, its possible that sacralization was also inborn or degenerative.but at my age of 30, sacralization maybe inborn not degenerative.
