    Exclamation scoliosis causing problems.. HELP PLEASE!

    As you read, this might not seem like a scoliosis question, but please take the time to read it because it really is. I'm just giving background information.

    I am a girl and I was diagnosed with Scoliosis when I was 12 years old. At 14, they put a brace. It was at 42 degrees. I am now 18 and it is at 44 degrees.

    I've always had migranes since I can remember. Still do, quite often actually.
    I started having anxiety when I was 15 years old. I had a couple of panic attacks, but they were never too bad. I thought I had ADD because I could never concentrate, never sit still, always move around, etc etc. But I found out I didn't have ADD.

    About 6 months ago, anxiety started getting worse, back pain getting EXTREMELY worse, muscles getting weaker (all over). I got restless leg about 4 times around 6 months ago.

    And the past 2 months, I've been experiencing extreme anxiety, hyperveinlation, panic attacks. Almost everyday. I have also been getting Restless leg syndrome and extreme muscle pain (usually in my lower extremities). Sometimes, I get so sore I can barely even walk right and all I do is lay with a heating pad ALL DAY LONG.

    My family doctor has put me on .75mg-1mg Mirapex for my legs and migranes. (NOTHING UNDER THIS HAS WORKED). Even still 1mg doesn't help sometime.

    I have developed insomnia from the RLS and sleepless nights.

    My mother told me to come with her to her pain doctor, jsut to talk to him.
    We should him my xrays and he could see the scoliosis by just looking at me. One arm longer than the other, hips are crooked, one shoulders higher, you know. :P

    He said that my RLS was either because of my anxiety, or because of my back pressing on nerves.

    I just feel so alone. Nobody really understands what I'm going through... everyone underestimates my pain and the severity of my rls...

    Does this happen to anyone else with scoliosis?!?
    Or does this seem like a different disease, like fibromygalia (SP), or Mulitple Scerosis, etc.?

    edit: i forgot to mention, sometimes, it feels like the bones in my spine lock up. whenever i pop my back its hard to come back to the position I was in.
    And sometimes when i BARELY move, the middle of my back (where the big curve is), it pops. it doesn't hurt, usually feels really good haha. But it only does this when i barely move one centimeter. (its not too frequent, & it usually happens when im sitting down.)
