I'm 22 years old next month and I've had kyphosis (73 degrees), scoliosis (11 degrees) and Lordosis (9 degrees) since I was 13 and it's been getting worse. Last week I was sitting down normally, watching tv, when I had a severe, sharp pain in my upper back (which is weird because my pain is usually lower-mid back) and it lasted about an hour. Since then my back has been in a lot of pain and I've had a tingling feeling all up my back and it has even moved into my arms and legs a little bit. It's starting to worry me especially since I can't get into my doctor until sept. 10th (my doctor is ridiculously hard to get into).
The pain and tingling has been getting worse so I'm wondering if I should be worried about serious effects or if nerve damage is just minor.
I see a neurosurgeon Sept. 8th, as well. I'm hoping I can get the surgery to be honest I'm too young to feel as lousy as I do. Anyone had the surgery, btw, because I'm a little curious as to how that works.
Any help would be much appreciated.
