It's probably osteo-arthritis. I have it in my lower back. I also have osteoporosis.

Sounds like osteoarthritis. An MRI could be helpful.

You definitely can get RA in your spine. When I have a serious flare, that's where it hits. For me, it's in the thoracic region and makes it impossible to take a deep breath without excruciating pain. I have to hit the codeine when it happens.
