I hope you are doing well today.
Let me tag some other members who can possibly share with you: @MeganLeanne @Pete.m @Leisha @Scruffymum @dianneStevensMK @val2015 @Lettuce @bellabee @Denisempitt
Do you have a curvature of the spine? Dose it affect walking or balancing? Has it gotten worse with time? If so, what do you do that helps?

@LizziB I don’t have curvature of the spine , but I do have spinal stenosis which is narrowing of the spine. It has gotten worse and can affect walking, sitting and many other things. It also can be very painful 😖

i have intermittent back pain, which is most troublesome if I stand for a long time, this limits what I can do. It can be on one side or the other, generally settles to just below my shoulder blades. I get relief if I sit down or better still lie down. My doctor is really not interested and sends me for physio. Will not send me for an X-ray or scan. I am 81 female. A Dexa scan revealed a curve in my spine and spinal degeneration. Have been prescribed pain killers (not really effective) and exercise.

I was born with scoliosis but didn’t really have many problems until about 5 years ago when it changed. I now have problems with my breathing and walking around is more difficult than before.
I'm 58 and in the same boat. I list badly to the left. It started when I was young and it's got worse the older I get. My GP says they won't operate until it goes over a certain angle so seems I'm stuck with it until it gets worse again. I'm a wheelchair user due to several other health problems and I had to have a special back on my chair.
Sending you gentle hugs and my support x
