Hi, my name is Rosie and I am 18. I have a 37 degree curve and I was diagnosed with scoliosis (on accident) when I was about 15-16.
I come here searching for new ideas and suggestions, as well as to meet other people who I can relate to. I've been reading and so many of you are suffering much more than I, and I can only wish you guys the best of luck. I'm so fortunate to not need surgery or any invasive treatments.
However, I do want to find a way to minimize my pain. I feel a lot like a senior citizen, very stiff. My neck always hurts and ever since I developed scoliosis, my backaches muliplied in pain by 10. I can't stand for longer then 15 minutes without it killing my lower back. It's really frustrating when I should feel young and like I can do anything, but I just feel like this is the beginning and it will only get worse.
I'm going to try to be optimistic though, and I hope to get to talk to you guys and hear your stories!
