Scoliosis (Curvature of the Spine) Not Just a Childhood Condition
“Scoliosis that occurs or is diagnosed in adulthood is distinctive from childhood scoliosis, since the underlying causes and goals of treatment differ in patients who have already reached skeletal maturity”
Scoliosis is an abnormal lateral curvature of the spine. It is most often diagnosed in childhood or early adolescence, but can also be diagnosed in adults. via Newswise

I am 23 yrs old and have been trying to control the pain of my scoliosis for about a year. I have been on hydrocodone 10/650mg for 8 months. It only helped for maybe 2 months. Now I'm seeing a new dr. Not sure what to do. Some say people with my cond. are in serious pain as am I. Some say the pain is nothing.

Ive been expieriencing pain in my lower back wich is where my curve is and there is nothing i cand do to stop except for laying down on my back with something to apply pressure to it other than dat medication only temporarily work. These pains cause me to be frustrated and mad at the world at times and the doctors say there is nothing they can do im to old for the risky surgery and my curve is not that bad but it causes pain like it is
