Know exactly how you feel...
I' ve known I had scoliosis since I was a teenager. I just really kind ignored it during my 20's and 30s. Once in a while I would notice spasms or mild pain but nothing that would stop me from doing what I wanted. I did consult w/ a doctor when I first got married and asked him about having children. He said it would be best just to have one or possibly two.
Well, now in my 40s it started taking over my life w/ a vengeance! I'm experiencing pain in places I hardly knew existed. I don't know what to expect from one day to the next. Just a few minutes ago I didn't know if I could bend down to get a pan underneath the stove. Another morning I felt numbness and tingling in all my limbs. It was almost impossible to brush my teeth- my arm was so weak.
Anyway enough about myself...I hope that pt helps you. I know it does me. They do some wonderful things and help build strength.
