Is scoliosis my fault? Did I worsen it?
Hello, I think that my scoliosis is my own fault and it makes me very nervous & unhappy.
It's because from 16 to 19 years I had underweight with 55 kg due to anxiety and psychosis as a male. Then I took medicine and at 20 years my weight was normal. I am 21 now. I also remember sitting incorrectly in front of the pc for many hours and in school. And maybe I had a lack of vitamins and poor nutrition although blood tests did not point to that.
At 19 years of age they discovered a 20° S curve scoliosis. Is this all my fault? Did I cause my own scoliosis? Did I worsen my scoliosis? Maybe I only had 5° and I worsened it up to 20° ? Could all of this have been prevented? Thanks for reading.
As a reminder, I was about 1.82 meters tall since 16 years and from 16 to 19 years I had underweight with only 55 kg as a male. Did this and the resulting unidentified nutrition + my poor sitting habits cause or worsen my scoliosis? Did it worsen my scoliosis even if it's just a tiny little bit? Or am I completely guiltless here?
