- Diagnosis Details
- I was diagnosed with my scoliosis at 16 my curvature was the shape of an S. So all and all i was told i had 3 curves, as i was still growing the doctors decided that they would brace me to see how i would do with it after a year and a half i was showing excellent improvement and the curvature decreased rapidly so the doctors told me that i had no need for the brace anymore as i had stopped growing! Not even 6months to a year my curveture had gotten worse but at that stage i was already in training for Hairdressing. Nothing has been done since and im in alot of pain 24/7 i cant remeber the last time i had none iv alot of medication that takes the edge of when im not working but when im at work it practically usless. Iv been to a consultant he keeps saying that he doesnt understand why i am in pain. I have seen two consultants in the same orthapidic section and one tells me that my curveture is 42 degrees and the orther tells me its 35 degrees i no its not a huge but still really painful
- Worn a brace?
