Overwhelmed with several spinal diseases at 44 yrs old.

Started by Mary N on 04/23/2015 8:32pm

I am a 45 yr old single mom. I have 2 active children 10 and 8. I always remember having back pain. Scoliosis was the first one found when I was in 6th grade. I always remember waking up stiff as a child. I also remember times when my back would hurt so bad I stayed in bed for days. Back then you did not go the doctor unless you were really sick. I did go to a doctor for my back once when I was 12 or so. I had exercises to do but never went for a follow up. Now I have to plan every thing I do around pain meds. I really am just so tired of it all.
I would love to find a doctor 1 doctor that works on the whole spine. I try to stay up beat and positive but it just gets harder and harder. Talk more another time. THANKS

Why don't you get to a good reputable Ortho, you need a MRI.
