Hello all, I am new to this board and need some help & advice.
I have been having constant back pain in my mid left back, the muscle can be seen in constant spasm(its always tight) and the pain comes and goes throughout the day.
I have had all other test to rule any type of tumor causing the pain by getting MRI of abdomen, CT of abdomen, CT of my pancreas, EUS of my pancreas, and all my bloodwork is normal. I was however told I have mild dextroconves scoliosis and mild t7=8, t8-9, andt9-10 disc degeneration.(basically arthritis right) I am a 32 year old male and am just asking if this diagnosis correlates with the pain the I always have. COuld mild disc degeneration cause mild pain?? Thank and any advice is appreciated.
Yes i believe it certainly can cause pain. But I think your main problem is the scoliosis. If you search on the net you will find a lot of very helpfull information. Have you tried Physiotherapy for relief? Some anti inflamatorys or muscle relaxants would definitly help as well. Take care and keep me posted. Kristy.
Extensive epidemiological studies have demonstrated little or no correlation between back problems and inherited factors, height, weight, deformity (unless gross), spinal movements, muscle strength, or radiological signs of disc degeneration. Much more important are cardiorespiratory disease, smoking, psychological morbidity, poor work conditions, social class, education, and income.
