I have a 53 degree thoracic curve that is centered around C5 and C6. For about 5 years I have felt some sort of irritation around there, like a bra hook rub, but there was no bra rubbing. Now I get a muscle spasm on the convex side of the curve that goes up my neck and causes a severe headache with vomiting. I can get my self nauseous by just pressing on this spazzed muscle. I am not sure that the scoli is causing this.

Your post has triggered a thought. Makes me wonder if spinal alignment could have something to do with migraines. There have been times while at a chiropractor that I have been hit with one while he was working on my neck. Iíve suffered from migraines most of my life but never associated them with my spine problem. Have to wonder if there is a connection. Your headache and vomiting symptoms are similar to some found in migraines. You might want to look into this possibility because at least there are a few medications available to help with migraines.
