Random 1: Backpain = Dengue or ScoliosisSunday, February 27, 2011
Fast forward:Yesterday, Saturday, I went for a check up. The usuals were done - Q and A and stethoscope here and there. When the attending physician lifted my clothes to check my back, she immediately said, "May kakaiba sa likod mo (There is something different on your back)." The curious me asked, "Ano po? (What is it?)" "A possible start of scoliosis." After hearing those words, my world broke into pieces. I know I could be sick but not of this kind. I was not ready to accept it.
Severity? It is just starting. I could still not let it grow or prolong. I have to undergo to several therapies/massages to get the bones back into its places.
How did I get it? I don't know. It may be caused my wrong posture, heavy carriage or genetics. I do not know anyone from my family that has this kind of sickness. I definitely point wrong posture and heavy carriage as causes.
Treatment? As of the moment, I was not given any. I just have to consult a specialist to further know the severity of my case.
For now, I just want someone to listen to me. I may be over-reacting, but honestly, it hurts. It would be a lot easy to accept if the doctor said I have dengue. There are times when I think and picture myself having a noticeable curvature on my back. The only thing I can do now is to correct my posture and carry less things on my right shoulder. I wish and pray that my case will not get anymore severe.
