I would imagine based on the description of "mundane as walking" in the FML, there isn't exactly any story behind it (ie. walking into something). If there was, it would more likely than not be part of the FML. They were walking, and they broke a bone. That IS the backstory.
possibly you have a light form of osteogenesis imperfecta, maybe ask your doctor about it?
I managed to fracture my Tibia while jogging in an attempt to get fit again. It ended with me not being able to walk without a splint for over a month. Apparently it wasn't the right time to get fit. My doctor immediately sent me for a bone density test, and it sounds like you need one too.
ooh, five broken bones in three years? that's rough. I've had several injuries myself over the years but, thankfully, no broken bones yet. I managed to dislocate my knee once by standing, though. Coming up on the seven year anniversary of that, actually - it happened on Christmas eve. Anyway, hope it heals fast and nicely, OP!
A friend had the same problem. He broke a leg twice in a year. Apparently he wasn't having enough sun for his type of skin (dark) so he was lacking vitamin D (it regulates the stuff needed in bones). But now in Australia he doesn't have this problem anymore :P I guess since you're in Massachusetts (not very sunny I imagine) it may apply to you too :)
