    Hi Ali, I'm really sorry to hear this I assume they have done tests such as an ECG to check your heart? Do you know how your blood pressure is, and have you been referred to a cardiologist at all?

    Toni xx
    37 years old, diagnosed with infantile idiopathic scoliosis at 6 months old with curves of 62(T) and 40(L) degrees. Casting and Milwaukee braces until surgery at 10 - ant release/pos fusion T1-T12, halo traction. Post op cast and then TLSO. Further surgery at 18 (ant release/pos fusion extended to L3 to include lumbar curve, costoplasty) and 25 (another costoplasty). Fusion extended to L4 at 33 (XLIF with 4 pedicle screws and two short rods). Pre-op curves: 76(T) and 70(L). Post-op curves: 45(T) and 35(L). Diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome aged 34; scoliosis almost certainly due to this rather than being idiopathic.

    Hi, generally people with a slow heart rate are often quite fit and it can be a very good sign of health.

    Costeochondritis is inflammation of soft tissue around ribs and can be painful. I had similar symptoms with my kyphosis that resolved when it was corrected. I actually thought this is what I had before I knew about my spine. I found the forward bend caused a lot of rib pain.

    Hope this helps. Feel free to message me if u want to ask anything about it.

    Hi, if your kyphosis is a high degree over 90- 100 it can affect ur breathing. Pain from an inflammed rib cage can make it feel harder too breathe because of the pain. Anxiety is a definite possiblity because of hyperventilation.

    If you are very concerned maybe ask for a lung function test-then it can put ur mind more at ease.
