I suffer from a condition called scoliosis http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scoliosis It causes quite painful discomfort in my lower back (that's where the twist is), and as a side effect I tend to hold myself slightly wonky, which results in a stiff neck too. (lol I'm breaking) Quite recently, my neck has started creaking. yeah, I know, odd huh? Obviously, it's very uncomfortable, and it's starting to creep me out. I've tried all sorts;; Cracking Lying on a hard surface Sleeping with no pillows Sleeping with one pillow Dangling my head of the edge of the bed Etc Unfortunately, nothing's worked, so if any of you have the same condition, or are really good at joint pain or discomfort, could you give me some tips on how to deal with it? It's become increasingly irritating and painful as of late. Thanks for reading, -Muffin

aw thats terrible Harriet :-(  how severe is your condition? was it
from birth or developed later?

are you able to get physical therapy? do you think surgery will be
necessary later?

aw poor thing. if you were my girl i would massage you if it made it
better but i guess its skeletal and not musculature... 

are you able to sit ok for a long time? or stand?  how is your range
of motion? doyou do a lot of stretching? aw poor thing.

Weeell I think I developed it from early adolescence; I had HUGE
growth spurts (like a weed) and that's where it came from.
It's only a 10 degree twist, so it just counts as scoliosis, it's not
all that bad dw.

I went to a specialist a few years back, had some x-rays blah blah 
but they said it wasn't serious enough for surgery, and that it should
just correct itself as I grow :<

ahaa, you're so kind 

I have quite a good range of motion, only if I twist too far, my back
cracks like popcorn xD.
Imogen tells me it's kinda kinky, but yeahokaysurewhatever
I do Pilate, so that helps, but there really isn't much I can do. I
Judy want some tips on alleiviatingt the symptoms

Just that it was only a minor twist, and it will just grow out as I
get older.
