Hi peeps.

Haven't been on for a while cos a) i've been busy/ lazy ha ha

and b) really haven't had anything new to report.

However, I am really plased and positive at the minute. Seen as in my 22mths since diagnosis all I have had are numerous consultations, scans and painkillers- nothing to actually help, I began physio last week.

Okay, so I know it was only my first session, but I felt so pleased that someone was actually doing something substantial to help. And the physio, Jo has scoliosis so all the stupid little things like it hurting when I lift the kettle or bend a certain way- she understood!! (I am obv. v grateful that my Scheurmann's isn't much worse, but it does affect things that I do and so far doctors seem to have thought it shouldn't be hurting, therefore I was being overdramatic.)

Jo showed me how to do some strengthening pelvic exercises, and also explained that as my curve worsened I have started to slouch and stand stooped. When she corrected my posture and showed me how to stand as straight as the kyphosis will allow but it felt so strange. I felt completely off balance and like I was going to fall over.

Have to keep doing my exercises and then go back in 2wks.

Excellent, I'm glad you're finally getting some treatment, and with someone who really understands too - what a bonus :D
