Oh the pain I am in. . .

I've had scoliosis since birth and had done the brace thing in my teens but now approaching my forties, I've developed pain in my right hip. Investigating with my doctor, thanks to this lovely thing called scoliosis, my hip is visibly deformed in x-rays. I returned to my original scoliosis clinic without much help. "Here have these industrial strength anti-inflamitories" and that's about all I got from them. The anti-inflamitories did help for a little while but now the pain is worse than before. I'm going for a second opinion on May 1, 2014. I have 2 curves, one is a smaller upper curve but the lower one has progressed from 19 degrees at age 25 to 28+ degrees and climbing. Has anyone else out there had a similar situation, where the curve of their spine has deformed the hips? I feel like since my curve isn't in the 50 degree range that the doctors don't take it seriously but the pain I'm experiencing is 100% serious. I feel things pop and pinch and my range of motion has been effected. Everytime I reach to the right for something at my desk I feel myself bracing for the pain. I'm too young to be in this much pain (at least in my opinion). I only see this getting worse as the years go on and I want it over NOW!! (I know, I'm impatient). I do some Yoga when the pain and time allows, to try to keep my core muscles in shape and support my back.

I guess I just needed to vent a little and hope for some comforting words and hopefully a few things that I can talk to my new doctor about when my next appointment comes around.
Thank for listening!
