    Find a doctor that will take you serious, especially if at some point you can not control bladder or bowel functions as that could be a surgical emergency.
    Welcome to the boards. There is a wealth of information on this site. And there are many great members that can relate and offer some suggestions. Good Luck to you!!

  • Hi my name is Charlie. I'm 15 and I have had back pain since I can remember. My mom took me to get it checked out when I was younger, she told me that they said my spine was off or something like that. I heard the doctor and her talking and the only word i got out of it was surgery. I never got surgery though. But my back still hurts every day. I have permanent bruises where my spine has been rubbing against my skin. My friend saw them and she told me her sister has scoliosis. She thought that I probably have it too but I'm not sure. wouldn't the doctor be able to tell if i had scoliosis? I am still able to do everything normally. If my spine is curved its probably only just slightly. But still, at the end of each day my back is in constant pain and I'm getting tired of it. What do you recommend? What do you think is wrong?
