Yeah, I don't know what these Army Docs are doing. They say that my spine is twisted (not curved like in normal scoliosis) and it cause my left side of my back muscles to constantly spasm. They say that there is nothing that they can do to fix it, so I'm stuck on Flexeril and now Vicodin. I'm a 25 year old guy who jumps out of airplanes and needs to live at least another 50 years... am I gonna be stuck on drugs the entire time?? That's what I'm most worried about.
