Hi, their are two things I'm wondering about. I want to wax my underarms which I actually never did and I have a condition called hidradenitis suppurativa I want to know is it still safe for me to wax with such condition? If I wax can it cause boils or anything like that?

The other thing I want to know about which is I have something called scoliosis and generally I have back pain. What I wonder about which is generally with any kind of pain I experience I'm not tolerable at all and I want to know since I'm not tolerable can it have any effect neurologically that causes not to be tolerable? Please let me know soon.

I know most people don't tolerate pain well and I'm one of them. I'm really not tolerable with pain at all. I really lose it when I'm in pain. I end up crying and yeling from pain I really don't have tolerance in anyway. I know having scoliosis can effect the nervous system, what I want to know is can it effect the nerves in any kind of way to not have tolerance with pain because I know pain is related to the nervous system?

Regarding the wax I will ask my doctor on Monday since I'm seeing him.

HI Melissa

Thanks for your post!

Regarding whether to wax - you need to ask your specialist that.

With regard to pain tolerence with scoliosis, I'm unsure of your question as the wording is difficult to understand. Are you asking if being in pain can affect your nervous system (your muscles, nerves, tissue) etc? Most people don't tolerate pain well. Is this what you mean?
