hey i am 15 and i have Scheuermann's Kyphosis.
How do i make the pain go away?
I'm not sure what degree it is but i have a hump but i can mostly hide it unless i bend a bit.
It hurts SO bad.
i have tried physical therapy and anti inflammatory.
It hurts when i do anythings but sit in a cushy chair or lay down. it hurts to stand for 3min.
it starts off getting all contracted and I stretch and i can pop it a lot for about 30min. ( my lower back pops and feels the pain but my upper back has the hump)
then it will move to this muscle in my left back and it will *inflame* then i can only describe what happens next as tightening like a corkscrew and the pain moves all over my lower back. the pain is in my muscles AND my bones. i can FEEL it.
I want to live a very active lifestyle and i fight right through the pain every day of my life for the past 2 years.
i only have an inch of height left so bracing is a no go.
what can i do?
*also i have scoliosis
i had pain when i was 13 and i went to the orthopedist. and he told me i have scoliosis and it was normal. so that summer i grew 4 inches and we went back and he told me i had kyphosis and he missed it earlier. i COULD HAVE braced it. i just want to shoot the guy =/ just really wanted to tell people that part.
