Today, I finally sorted out my health insurance and went to the doctor. After seeing my X-rays and confirming I still had scoliosis, he also confirmed arthritis in both hips, 2 exploded discs and that I have "the back of a 50 year-old." I'm 24. FML

What are they doing for you? The underlying diagnosis obviously wasn’t treated properly. I’d look into physical therapy and other options to see what to do to slow it down. None of my doctors ever brought up PT. More pain meds, surgeries, stuff like that. I am glad I asked about trying it.

I am seeing a chiropractor twice weekly, will continue seeing my PT (who has loads of experience with people with chronic injuries) so I don't become a potato and generally just try and be a bit more gentle on myself. Surgery is on the cards but I'm going to start with physical therapy.

As far as the diagnosis goes, it's no one's fault but mine and my high pain threshold. My doc is great and listens to me but I just thought it was moderate scoliosis. I have learned my lesson now and will be taking better care of my health. Thanks for your info :)
