Elizabeth444's Story

My family history...and I possibly got it myself and it could be the cause of my later life scoliosis.

I have Scoliosis and we're not sure whether is from this or whether it is from something else that it has stemmed. My Mum has had rheumatoid arthritis for a long time and she lives with the pain daily as you guys would know. She had a few accidents when she was young and a few when she was older and used to need just a stick but now she lives with crutches and for her she can only walk about 100 meters down the road on a very good day or else she is done for and does not find walking and getting round very. Sometimes she now a days will even use a stick especially if her arthritis is particularly bad on that given day.
