How's everyone this evening?
I personally am in alot of pain tonight
I've been trying to slowly increase my level of activity so that I can be ready for a full days work when I find a new job, cause unemployment will soon be on my case, but every time I try I end up in worse pain again. But the docs say I should get back to work, and have written a letter to unemployment stating so ( just a job not so physical is what they stated) So I keep trying.
Anyhooo, my question de jour is: Does anyone know anything about adult left convex scoliosis of mid thoracic spine? I've been trying to research this but apparently this is rare and I can't find much info. All I've found is:left thoracic curvatures are uncommon (1-2% of curves)
a thoracic scoliosis convex to the left should also be worked up as they are often also associated with tumors. I don't think this is the case because I assume this would've shown up on the MRI. Is there any difference if it curves to the left? Is this something that should be watched? Could this be due to the compression fractures of T6 and T8 that I got from a fall on the stairs when I was 8 yrs old? Nothing was done at the time, my mom was told they would heal and be fine, mind you that was 39 yrs ago and considering how little they know now, they obviously knew alot less then.
Also having trouble finding info on perineural cysts
(C7-T1 present in both neural foramina), (S1-S2 involving nerve roots).
Any info would be greatly appreciated. I'm going to the doc's again next Thurs and would like to be as well informed as I can.
I just want to be sure these things aren't adding to my other problems.
Thanx yet again for listening
