I have been suffering with scoliosis for about 3 years now and decided it was time to join a forum. I have had Scoliosis all my life, but it didn't start to bother me or become noticeable until about 3 years ago when I had keyhole surgery to remove my Appendix.
I have seen numerous Physiotherapists, GPs and Specialists which didn't help me until I met a Physio who sent me for an MRI scan which revealed that my curve was at 38 degree when they only thought it was 25. I have been referred to a surgeon in Middlesborough and my appointment came through for 8th June.
Is anyone else from the North East? I am originally from Newcastle but now live in Darlington with my partner. I am 22 years old and work up to 12 hours a day!
I am desperate for helpful tips to deal with pain....I take strong pain relief but it doesn't help at all.
Thanks in advance, looking forward to meeting everyone.
