My school nurse checked my back and said I might have scoliosis!

My school nurse checked my back and said I might have scoliosis! What does that mean and how did I get it? If your nurse...

I had, well I still have scoliosis. My mom thinks I got it from both sides of the family. From my mom's sister and my dad's grandma. I took multiple x-rays and even went in an MRI. My spine was curved and my doctor said I have scoliosis. I went to physical therapy, but I stopped going for some unknown reason and I had to wear a body brace for twenty hours a day for three years. I did it for the first two years then I just got lazy and didn't do it the last year. So the results, I still have scoliosis, but it doesn't cause my body to lean to one side when I stand up and it's not really noticeable. Thank God!!!

My school nurse is dumb, I wouldn't believe everything they say without a doctor.

MOD MOD MOD
i have a 35 degree curve in scoliosis, and i have to wear a brace, ive been wearing it throughout the whole summer but im nervous about changing in the lockerroom. any tips?

 

Hey chica! Wear a tank top over it if you feel shy about it.  Chances are someone might notice, and if anyone asks, feel free to just tell people you need a brace for your back- they don't need to know any more than that if you don't want them to.  xoxo

My sister had scoliosis and i have mild scoliosis but my sister's was awful. She had to wear a night brace for 6 months leading up to her surgery. The surgery was to insert a "tether", which is a contraption that the taller you grow, the more it pulls your spine and corrects the scoliosis. For 5 months after the surgery, she had to wear a day brace and a night brace, and for those 5 months the doctor's and surgeon's orders were to not jump, run, twist, bend down, or do excersise. Sometimes the pain from wearing the brace was so bad that she would have to take 3 pain pills at a time! Now that those awful 5 months are over, she can do whatever she wants, but still has to wear the night brace and is not allowed to jump on trampolines. All of the doctors, nurses, offices, hospitals, ect. have been very helpful in her recovery. I am thankful that my curve is mild! p.s. thank you to whoever read the whole thing! good job Smile

Mod Mod Mod!!! The skin on/under my eyebrow is peeling A LOT. I've put moisturizers on it ; but they just make me look like I have MAJOR dandruff in my eyebrows. I've been using a face cleanser and trying to scrub it off but IT WON'T STOP PEELING. IT'S BEEN PEELING FOR LIKE FIVE DAYS STRAIGHT. I can't stop picking it either. And my picture day is THIS Tuesday and my first day of school is the TUESDAY after that and I don't want to LOOK like I have dandruff in my eyebrows. PLEASE help!!!!

 

Hey Sarah510, mhmm. Try putting hydro-cortizone, aloe vera or cocoa butter on your eyebrows. Even a little bit of olive oil (cooking or lotion) may help. Let me know if anything works. Xoxo Smile

I have severe scoliosis,(had surgery) but most people have it mild enough that you don't need to do anything to it. If a nurse found it in a routine check- so you didn't notice pain or have weird posture from it- I'd bet its pretty mild. You might have to wear a brace which prevents it from getting worse. It's good that you caught it younger though b/c that can make it easier to prevent progression. I can play sports (lacrosse, swim, volleyball), play instruments (flute, saxophone, etc.) fine. It's something you live with but I barely notice it.

I have scoliosis and I've had a brace for almost two years and I'll be getting it off soon. Bracing isn't very enjoyable, but sometimes it needs to be done. My doctors say that you stop growing (for the most part) two years after your first period, so that's when you can get your brace off. But anyways, don't panic. If you're going through puberty now and the doctors don't expect the curve to grow, you have nothing to worry about.
