Hi everyone.
I am so very pleased to find this site. I saw it on T.V. tonight.
I have 45 degree scolosis, Fibromyalgia and severe Artheritis. I did not know I had scolosis until February 2004 after a fall. Shortly after that a very large bump came out on my back on the right side and I started walking tipped to the left. I was x-rayed and the doctor said it was 45 degree scolosis.My spine is so very curved and painful.
We went back to some old x-rays which showed a curvature years ago but was never told about it. Now I am a mess and cannot find a doctor here in Hamilton for the spine. My doctor just seems to leave it up to me.
I have a friend who is trying to get me into a doctor she knows.
I have pictures of my spine that the specialist gave me from the x-rays and I am going to take them to his office.
There are so few doctors in this area is what I am told.
I am very tired now but will be back tomorrow. I did not know there are so many with this problem. Having this site is so wonderful.
By for now.

Hey im new too. I mean i've known all my life i had it. I have a rare type. Congenital scoliosis. I have so many things that i want to know. I've been doing research for a project at school and my doctor has kept me in the dark about it all. I have a 37 degree curve. Its painful and i am resticted. I hated it as a child not being able to do sports or anything too physical. The pain is unbearable most days. I love this site too I get a chance to talk to others who have this too since i know no one who does. There is so much i want to know!!!!
