scoliosis

I have severe scoliosis and have lived with it for years. I am now for about 2 years have been having increased pain. It's everyday. Meds do not help and I'm frustrated. I have seen docs, got injections, tried therapy, and now decided to take it into my own hands. i feel as if the docs think I'm crazy. I get sensations to my skin as if I am sunburned..it hurts to lightly touch it sometimes in certain places, I also sit for a for a while and I feel as if my muscles are tired as if I have run a marothon. I have a place just right of my spine and shoulder blade that is numb...and to be quite honest can't enjoy things as I use to. I have 4 teenagers at home, I am a supervisor at a busy docs office, and i go to school at night. I have the drive to do it all but I am slowly starting to slow down physically. I am afraid I will be in a wheel chair soon. I see a spine specialist on 3-18 if anyone has advice for me please feel free to comment.

Re: scoliosis

a lot of it could be stress on the spine due to what may feel like a hectic lifestyle. I myself have scoliosis, and personally I feel as if the chiropractic help isn't working, but what I notice for me that taking to to relax(sleeping, short walks, and taking a break in general) tends to help ease the pain more than meds. One day when you don't have work send the teens out to a movie, while you take a warm bath or a nap.
