Customer Question

Recently i have had pain in my toes, fingers, hands, weak arms, and severe pain in my left hip. I am 65 and was diagnosed with scoliosis at 15. This pain is new. Is it from the scoliosis or something else?

It is not from scoliosis.
There are many possible causes, from diabetes, to hidden infection to heavy metal toxicity and autoimmune disease.
You need to see an internal medicine doctor for exam and testing.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
