    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    I posted this on the main board but all my posts seem to get either lost or overlooked there so i'm just gonna post here instead...how's that for my being a grumpy groupie??? LOL

    So I went to the doc, got my xray results
    i have chronic back and hip pain to due scoliosis most likely as a co-morbid condition whose symptoms are made worse by leg perthes syndrome which runs heavily in my family, he says i have calcification and some other stuff i can't remember present on my hip which is what is causing me pain and the by extension back pain as well...so know i have new pain meds, he rx'd me some norco to take as needed to see if it brings me any relief, seems pain management is about all we can do for now and i go back in a month for a follow up...

    OMG, you poor sweet heart. I have scoliosis too. I totally know how you feel when it comes to back pain. Request an MRI. They did that for me and they found that I had arthritis in my neck, slipped discs and a thinning disc which causes me a lot of problems.

    Also, see a Chiro. I highly recommend it. Have a one hour, complete body massage done. Not the nice, comfy ones, the rough ones they do. It will hurt at first, but the more you have them done, the easier and less painful they will be. The massage loosens up your muscles so that its easier for the chiro to set your back, neck, hip and anything else that needs to be put back into place. I even had shoulder pain for a bit, and he set my shoulder. lol. The Chiro can also set you up with physical therapy.. It cant hurt to try honey. hugs
