Re: shermans / scheremans disease?????

are you talking about Schuermans? If so, I had an MRI done 10 years ago that said possible Schuermans. In all it pretty much means your spine is curved forward or the appearance of a hunched/slouched back. Mine is not so bad but it does effect me as far as stiffness, acheness, tingling etc. It looks like I have bad posture when really its my spine that is curved that way. So no matter how hard I try to straighten up my posture, I look like I'm sitting hunched a little. It actually hurts to straightened my back. So back when I was a kid my mom use to always tell me that I'm slouching and I remember trying to straighten up like my sister looked, but I just couldn't. Even still I try to do straightened up but I just can't.

I just had a recent MRI and it still shows the same but now degeneration and bulging discs are showing.

Hope this helps!!

Re: shermans / scheremans disease?????

yeah it's not too bad, just another thing to give you some tightness, tingling, aching, etc especially in the cold and humidity. I think what bothers me most is the way it makes me look, so unrefined. I would love to have that perfect posture with the straight shoulders, but only one can wish!! At least it's not life threatening!! With all my other problems, this is the least of my worries...
