6 Different Diagnosis, still not sure what is wrong.
Okay, I have had back complications known about since I was 5 years old, and have had 6 different diagnosis, I would like to have a direct answer and know exactly what is wrong with me its been nearly 20 years of back pain! Here are a few of the diagnosis, dextroscoliosis (this probably isn't spelled correctly), poor posture, uneven hips causing a lower spine curvature, and one leg is shorter than the other. Growing up I had severe pains in my legs, middle and lower back that my parents wrote off as growing pains. I have had a constant back ache since before I can remember, I have learned to put the pain in the back of my mind and I tend to work harder than others just to prove to myself that I can. I get sharp pains in my right hip after walking alot, and I get this horrible stiffening pain on the right side of my spine between ribs if I move the wrong way, I have daily head aches, and recently began having nightly abdominal pains. I have been taking tylenol or excedrine everyday twice a day since I was 13 and sometimes been put on heavier things when I would attempt to get an answer out of my doctors, when I turned 18 I gave up on my doctor(s) and just stayed on a strict regiment of tylenol or excedrine. At 23 now, I'm finding out it maybe very serious because my father has some genetic fusion of vertebrae in his back. Now that I have a baby I need to know exactly what is wrong, for his sake.
