for Catherine's back problems. She has many days lately where she seems pain free, and then out of no where, when we start to let ourselves believe it might all be going away, the pain returns. Not excruciating pain, but uncomfortable enough for her to not want to do much more than sit on the couch and read. The pain comes for no reason at all, not under strain or stress. We have an appointment with a neurologist from Children's Memorial in December to hopefully shed light on this. We know what it ISN'T (cancer, broken bones, slipped disks, arthritis, Lupus, Lyme, West Nile, mono etc) but not what it IS. Could it still be related to her scoliosis? Not sure except two orthopedist agree it ISN'T likely. Sigh.
