What is this? Feel like my spine is colliding


At the past few weeks, when I'm sitting in the bus and the bus 'jumps' on a ramp or something similar and goes up and down, lets imagine the spine is only 2 'rods' that join in the middle - I feel like they hit one another \ collide and after that I feel for like half a minute that the spine is a 'rod' in the back of my back (instead of simply not feeling anything... how it's supposed to be).

This doesn't really hurt but it's a very unnatural feeling.

What can this be?

I have a few bulged discs at the bottom of the spine and I lately went to 2 appt. with a chiro that did 'adjustments'. Since those 'adjustments' this started (and other problems I wrote about in another thread).

    Hey Dilauro,

    Thanks for wrtiting.

    I'll be very happy if you can elaborate a bit... When did it start, what is this 'called' or any other information.. :)

    First lumbar surgery 1978, last 2016, First cervical surgery 1994, last 2000,  Both shoulders totally replaced 2010, Both hips totally replace 2012 and 2013.

    Not called anything, just plain old jarring of the spine.  Started 40 years ago, still goes on today.   No problem, no structural problem, nothing that needs to be done.  Sometimes, the jar can last over 60 seconds, can even leave my feet numb for a bit.

    Now,  if you are still uneasy with all of this, then I suggest you contact your doctor to discuss this.
