    Does anyone else with ME have an x-tra vertebrae like I do? I'm just wondering. Only 2% of the population do.

    Hi teejkay, I don't know if I have extra vertebrae, but I had a CT scan of my neck last week and discovered that I have C7 cervical ribs. Guess that makes up for my missing xiphoid process and missing palmaris longus. My sister has 2 ureters on one side. I think we're a family with lots of genetic anomalies.

    Where is your extra vertebra?

    Hi

    I do Tee! Never thought I'd be so happy to share having an extra V. with someone...I've often asked others this too. I didn't know there was such a low rate of us.

    awww Mark, If I wasn't short already I'd be glad to give you my x-tra.

    The replies have all been interesting so far. Genetic abnormalities anyone? Feel free to share.

    I have 6 lumbar vertebrae instead of 5.
