Re: Side effects of scoliosis..?
I think they say scoliosis doesn't cause pain as technically it doesn't, it's the muscles and so on that are affected by it that cause pain but my surgeon always knew I was in pain and didn't try and blow it off.
I think I was more affected my scoliosis than I realised, silly things like only breathing through my mouth and not being able to blow my nose have stopped since my surgery (yes I can finally blow my nose!) It affectes everyone differently, my lower internal organs and my ribcage are now positioned totally differently. I never had tingling though, my muscles just seized up a lot, even after stupid things like bending over!
Hope you don't have too much more trouble with things!
