Re: Scoliosis diagnose and then some... Advice!
I normally post on the "Back Problems" board, but was reading here today and saw your post. I'm sorry no one responded to you. If you are still around, and still ha,ve questions, I'd be happy to try to answer your questions.
Sometimes "mild scoliosis" can just be a result of how you are lying in the MRI tube, and the position you are in when the scan is done. I never had scoliosis for the first fifty+ years and then one time the finding showed up. As we age and if we have some other spine issues and may be compensating for pain,we can develop a small amount of twisting in part of the spine which is labelled mild scoliosis. It is mostly identified and then just watched if further MRIs are done.
It sounds like your issues are coming from your lower lumbar spine and involve some nerve compression, perhaps from a bulging disc, arthritis or stenosis. Any of these things can be very painful.
