Is there anybody out there who is dealing with GCA and Curvature of the spine.I was first diagnosed with curvature at age 12.Wore a brace, which was extremely painful and did nothing. Yesterday, my nurse measured me, and I have lost 4" in height. Distressing. As a child, my Mother was warned of the danger of an op, and in October, last year, a spinal consultant, re-iterated that.Had a Dexa scan, which showed very thin bones. Take Ibandronic Acid for that.
