My Scoliosis 37° & 30°
Until recently I hadn't been to a doctor for 10 years. My back had two curves of 37° & 30°. It had progressed from 26° & 28°. I've went to a doctor recently because I've been having a lot more problems with my back, ribs, hip, shoulder, and neck. The doctors seem to almost blow me off. Even had one doctor tell me scoliosis shouldn't cause me problems at all. He was more worried because my blood pressure was a little high. These doctors don't seem to know much about scoliosis other than its a curvature of the spine. They gave me tramadol for the pain which doesn't help at all. What should I be given for pain? I know there's a big problem with people abusing pain medication. And doctors don't want to give narcotics. Do I have any other options? The pain is close to driving me insane! I'm dealing with the VA since I'm a veteran. Only choice I have since its free. Any help would be appreciated!
