    Does anyone here get really bad headaches or migraines? Do you think this could be caused by scoliosis? I have had the absolute worst headache for about 48 hours now. It was the worst last night. I took 2 Relpax, which didn't help, then 3 advil, which didn't work, so I took one more. Can headaches be caused by knots or anything else? Thanks.

    Me too - or when I spend too much time bent over, like reading in my lap or on a table, or using the sewing machine. Imitrex and two Excedrin usually get rid of it in an hour or two.

    Pre-surgery: upper curve 44 (and kyphosis), lower curve 45
    Post-surgery: under 20, both curves (doesn't even qualify as scoliosis anymore )

    Scar getting to the point where people either don't notice it or think it is from something much less serious!
