Hey there. New here, I guess the format is to state my age, etc. I'm 30, diagnosed around age 7. Never had surgery, and the curve was just under the required amount to require a brace, so I guess I got lucky.

Now to the question. As mentioned before, I never had any real treatment for this, and eventually, I just stopped going to the doctor (I was supposed to go once per year, and had to stop when I didn't have insurance anymore). It's probably been at least 10 years if not more. Lately, I've been having pain/numbness in my back and chest on the left side, and very severe pain in my right hip. I'm wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience and whether this might be a sign of the curve getting worse? I know I should see a doctor about it, but it'll be a few weeks before I have time to do so, and just looking for a few possible answers in the meantime.
