Hello all! I am a 23 year old female. I was diagnosed with scoliosis when I was 13 years old. I was treated with a brace for about a year, and since then have had periodic x-ray check ups, with the top curve floating close to 40 and the bottom around the 30s. I am an active person, I do yoga and go to the gym about 3 times a week. Generally I've never really had pain from my scoliosis besides fatigue in my lower back after long periods of standing. Recently, though, I started a full time job which requires a lot of desk work/long periods of sitting & looking at a computer - far more than I'm used to - and I've noticed a new tingling sensation in my right thoracic back where I have my rib hump.

The tingling is intermittent and not too severe, but it worries me because i have never experienced this in my back before.I realize it could be caused by my new, more sedentary work environment, but I'm concerned that it could be a sign that my curves are progressing. Does anyone have any insight into new sensations like tingling and if they have any relation to a worsening of scoliosis?

Thanks for reading
