Scoliosis acting up

Hi all,

I found myself on this site seeking for people who are experiencing the same or similar things as I.

I've had scoliosis my entire life, at age 12 I wore a back brace for 6 months but ended up having the surgery later on when I was 13. My upper spinal cord had a 60 degree curve to the right and my lower back had a 50 degree curve to the left.

I received a titanium rod and a few screws to straighten me out.

(I'm now 24yrs old)

9 months ago I had a baby.
For the last month I have been feeling a pinching pain between my right shoulder blade and my spinal cord. It almost feels like tension head ache but worse. If I move suddenly or turn my neck to the left I get a shot of pain that stops me immediately. If I try to straighten my shoulders the same pain occurs.

has anyone ever experienced something like this? It's getting worse.

  • I'm a man, so havent been pregnant. But I've had all types of back pains, aches, pins and needles, numbness since my fusion. I have noticed that I get different back pains based on the type of physical activity that I've performed. Perhaps there are stretches that you can do to help ease the pain and strengthen that area. Perhaps you need a new mattress or new shoes? I'm guessing your physical activity level has changed since giving birth so your body might be reacting to that.
