hi i have been experiencing pain in my sciatic nerve this week and i think it might have been just because i slept wrong. this prompted me to find some help because i believe i have scoliosis .
i don't have the s curvature in the spine my spine is straight mostly. i walk with a hunch and i think one of my vertebrae is getting bigger than the others. its the one where my head bends and is right around shoulder height. i did this walk in test and they said 10 lbs more weight i put on one foot.
i have tried to talk to doctors and they all tell me stand up straight. well i don't want to sound weak but i have 10 million other things on my mind at all times. and when i stand up straight i sometimes over extend and it hurts my neck.
when i throw my head back fast or slow i can feel my spine stabbing my nerve or whatever and i think "ok i didn't die this time" it is as hocking pain and feels electrical kinda. i was able to put my head back much further when i was younger.
im so sick of having this hunch issue. im young and i want to be more active. i'm scared if i fall off something and land on my back my spine will stab my nerve and leave me paralyzed. i was told i have 2 locked disks i think on either side of this vertebrae.
if i poke at the area i can hear it click and i can kinda move it back and forth a little. a lot of times i stretch my head back with my shoulders and hear small/loud cracking in the area 2 or 3 times.
do you guys have any suggestions for fixing this? i cant stand living with this (literally) and i seriously look like a moron standing up straight, it hurts too much, i lack the focus, and results seem to never come just pain.
thnaks a lot
