Hey..im a 12 year old girl with scoliosis, ill tell you my story, whats wrong, and then ask you guys if you can help
here it goes.
When i was in 5th grade (last year) i was diagnosed by my school nurse with scoliosis, i didnt think much of it, knowing that my spine was curved i just thought, hey? its just a curve..nothing more to it.
i went into the doctor with my mom to get it checked out, but the doctors never called us back with results, after i got out of 5th grade i became homeschooled, to prevent me from bullies, and having to walk. i became really lazy not having recess and gym etc, and became slouching on the couch severly..i would always use my laptop, (causing me to look down) which put my neck in a very bad position, so as you may or may not have realized..i became to have clicking neck (clicking neck is basically when the muscles in your neck become to tight causing your neck to make cracking/popping sounds when you move it)
blah blah blah, lets skip forward a bit, a random thing i remember, is one day i was behing a computer desk sitting in fetus position, and i tried to get out of it to go and get gfood, then ALL the bones in my body popped! it didnt hurt, but it popped. when i would move it felt as if my bones would shift. i grew out of it over time, then came school season, i went into sixth grade, i became slouching more and more on the couch, not being active AT ALL, day in day out, on the couch, over time my back started hurting MORE and MORE, its come to the point where i cant even walk for 4 minutes the max, without my back bursting in pain. also in the top of my back on the left side (not in my spine) there is a crack that wont leave! i keep having to crack it over and over!
today (august-11-2016) i went in to get xrays, the doctor said i will get results tomorrow on how bad my curve is (because like i said idk what it is because they didnt tell me) then my mom and i are making a apointment.
as i said, my back is very tight, i have a crack i cant get rid of, my back hurts to walk, my neck is tighter than ever! and i have scoliosis on top of it! i really want to be a dancer, but im afraid i wont be able to even achieve that because one: im 12 and i think im too late, and two: i have scoliosis! ALSO IMPORTANT: scoliosis can affect lungs..i already have asthma which i was diagnosed with at 7 years old, and latley on and off ive been having some shortness of breath issues here and there.
im in complete tears everyday! i literally cant say how much i cry because of this! im trying to fix what i did! i know i messed up so much and this is all my fault! im literally crying while typing this and idk what to do! please help..ive tried other sites but no one responds..thanks..
also if your wondering why a 12 year old is ont his site, and not her mom or something, its because im more determined than EVER, to fix what i did to myself. it would mean so much if you helped!!!
