Hi, sorry to hear about your pain. I am 25 and just found out that I have mild Scoliosis. It was somehow missed when I was a child (which is a mystery because I was always checked!) I have terrible muscle spasms all day long because of my curves! I didn't have insurance for over a year, so I'm just now getting treatment for it.

I know with being a student it's hard to go to the dr, but that's probably your best bet. Muscle relaxers don't help me much either. Just last week I started physical therpay and I'm hoping that will help me at least manage the pain better.

Your curve is about the same as mine and I also have leg and hip pain from it, which is causing even more pain. My right leg is shorter than the left and so forth. I know my PT keeps telling me posture is really important when you have Scoliosis. You could try heat to stop your spasms or ice to bring the swelling down. Good luck :)
