I am 23 yrs of age and have had scoliosis since i was 6 monthes old. I was born with deformities to include curviture of the spine which developed into scoliosis when i was 6 months old. So I have been dealing with it all my life, but i have a lot of stuff besides scoliosis wrong with me. I have 2 curves. And I have noticed now that I have gotten older I have more problems with it (as far as back pains) and they are really intence. I have never actually tried to find out alot about it I just knew i had it and then later on in life i found out that it runs in my family. What I would like to now is even if it doesn't change in your childhood years if it can chage in your adult years if something major happens to you and if it can take a while to actually be noticed?
