    I think I have Scoliosis

    Hi..I found this board searching for some answers from the internet..About a year ago I noticed a knot where my right collar bone is...it was painful at times but nothing to really alarm me...2 weeks ago i noticed the rest of my collar bone on that side had grown evenly with what I had tought was the knot...Evidently it wasnt a knot...My right collar bone is now putruding...When I became a teen ager and my breast began to develope it became noticable that one breast was larger then the other...My mother always told me it was normal that alot of women had this problem...I grew up thinking I had a condition known as Pigeon Breast ( thats what my mother told me it was) I wish I had looked Pigeon Breast up on the internet sooner because thats not what I have at all...When a women has Pigeon Breast her rib cage sticks out father then the breast...my uneven breast ..collar bone..ribs and a bulding of a muscle in my thigh all lead me to Scoliosis..I have not seen a doctor yet to be diagnosed it is a holiday so I must wait til Monday and make an appointment...I also have other problems such as depression..irritable bowel and kidney problems..from what I have read all of which is linked to Scoliosis....Its nice to have a place to go and discuss things like this...At the moment my family is under alot of stress with my sister being sick and dont want to burden them with my new found worries..I know self diagnos is not a answer but could you guys plz tell me what you think...ty all and god bless you

    What you are describing does not sound like scoliosis at all. It may be a totally unrelated health issue.

    Where did you read this? I would honestly like to see this article. Depression can be linked to scoliosis in a way that those who are affected by scoliosis, especially when it is of a high degree, get depressed because they do not like the way they look, or are in such pain.

    IBS has nothing at all to do with scoliosis. Loss of bowel movement and bladder control is linked to scoliosis and also spinal tumors. IBS is completely different.

    Kidney problems, the only way I could see it linked is the compression of the kidneys by kyphosis which is when your back curves forward.

    Please please please please PLEASE do not self diagnose yourself. You are merely worrying yourself for nothing. You sound young, therefore you have no medical training or expertise. Please, go get checked out before worrying. This sounds nothing at all like scoliosis.

    I agree with everyone else, doesn't sound like scoliosis. You should make a doctor's appointment and see if it really is scoliosis.
