Q: 

Do you normally feel dizzy and fatigue, hurting all over with Scoliosis?

I just was told I have Scoliosis. I'm 33 years old. I have an appointment with a Orthopedic Surgeon on Tuesday. What do Orthopedic Surgeons normally do for someone who has this? I have so many questions. I have felt horrible for years. I never knew I had this until now.

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

You will be able to talk to your doctor in detail about what's going on with your spine and what to expect from now on.

Dizziness aside, pain is common with scoliosis and fatigue can follow. You may be dizzy for other reasons like low iron but mention this to your doctor too.

For what may be done - check out our scoliosis page here (cut and paste): http://www.empowher.com/condition/scoliosis/definition

Best,
Susan
