I have Beckers Type Muscular Dystrophy. For a long time now I have not been able to lay flat because of bad back pain. I think my spine may be curved. I have never been diagnosed with curvature of the spine. I am 46 years old and now I have Osteo Arthritis in my lower back and left hip. I read your article on Neuromuscular Scoliosis and I think that is my problem. I am experiencing pain when sitting in an upright position like in a shower chair in the middle part of my back. Could I possibly have Neuromuscular Scoliosis? I had an x-ray on my hip before being diagnosed as having arthritis but no mention of the spine being curved. Please help.
