Scoliosis??

Last time I was checked for it was when I was 12 maybe? Always told no. But now in adulthood my epiderals have always worn off half hour after getting them.. Obgyn says it happens sometimes could be a result from my nerves, just my body's reaction to the medication or if I have scoliosis..

My uncle on my moms side of the family has it but because I was told no years ago I figured I don't.. Not realizing I could develope it.. And just the other day I found out my half sister (6 yrs younger then me). Was just diagnosed with a mild case of it...

Have any of you heard of this happening? If so how do u "develope" it...? Is bad posture a cause? Because I will admit I do hunch my shoulders..

Next doctor visit I'm going to ask them to check, finally get to the bottom of this epideral issue

  • It can become more severe as you age as mine has but I would assume bad posture could force the spine out of what is considered normal.

  • I got scoliosis a couple of years ago.  My chiropractor has been working on it for a year and my spine is almost straight now.

  • I was tested in 7th grade. They said the test was inconclusive
    I had my epi with my son and the doc said,do you know you have scoliosis? Ummm,no lol
    Hunching your shoulders in adulthood does not cause it
