Just got back from my doctor appointment about my back. Turns out my back is slightly curved. It's like Scoliosis (sp?) but not quite (yet) because it isn't curved a lot. Basically I can go to physio to see if that will help. If it doesn't then I'd need to see a specialist. I don't have time (let alone money) to go to physio. Not with the new job. I don't want to start already taking time off. So I'm not really sure what to do. I do want to see another doctor though. I got the impression that the doctor was just trying to get rid of me. He gave me the answers that would get me out the door quicker. He didn't even suggest a place to go for physio.

Wow, bad back at your age. Sorry to hear it. I'll make sure to give you a back rud next time I see you. And I won't try anything funny either.

A back rud? lol.

I'm sorry about that, it really bites that your doc didnt suggest a place to go.

Going to another doc would be a good move. Always best to get a second opinion.

Nevermind my hubby's bad spelling. You know what he means.

Does your back hurt? How bad?

I have a fetish for women with slightly curved backs, esp, if they can sing like Diana Krall. And I bet a lot of other men do, too. So that is the good side of this.

P.S. I don't think you should trust Lowk and his back rud trick. That is the oldest one in the book.

I don't think you should trust advice from guys who sleep with dogs on their heads. I believe that is illegal in MN or is it a duck? Did you know that this problem is common in women..the Twisted Sister thingy..My daughter had to have two rods placed in her back..worse case senario. She is fine today. She was in her teens, so age has nothing to do with it. It does need to be watched though so that it doesn't get worse. Back rud can be fun but it won't make the problem go away. Just have your doctor assist you with finding a good orthopedic specialist..The problems could be more serious as you age and you will age...Can't be 21 forever. Calli's advice is sound as always...(2 points for sucking up). Go to the Doc that specializes with these type conditions. My Grandmother also had problems with it and they didn't do things for you in those days...Find out the facts and the fix....I'll make funny when you are feeling better.

Thanks everyone! I have an appointment in Sept. for physio. My awesome Dad went and made the appointment for me while I was out at the lake. Turns out my Alberta Health Care covers three visits and then if the therapist feels I need more they submit a request and up to six more visits could be covered. Which means free for me. I love my Alberta Health Care!

You know Lowk I just might take you up on that offer!

Yeah, I was gonna say. I thought you peeps got free health care. At least that is what the libs down here tell us, cause all I ever hear is how we should have Canada's healthcare system.

We do have a great health care system here. Not everything is free though. Regular doctor visits are. If your doctor sends you to a specialist that is covered and I guess physio is as well. It's just the number of visits for certain things are limited. If you have to get medicine that isn't covered either unless you have benefits at work.

You do pay into the health care though but it's a very small amount per year. It's totally worth it.
