I am not too bad at the moment, the odd twinge but at least I can walk around stood straight and not bent in half lol. When I was fostering kittens a lot of their health and strength came from how the mother was cared for during the pregnancy. This makes me wonder if the same thing applies to humans and your mothers diet and health during her pregnancy, mothers who drink lots of alcohol or use drugs during pregnancy can affect the children but maybe even having a diet that's not high enough in calcium or minerals could affect us. They used to say that a woman lost a tooth for every child she had, cos the baby took the available calcium first.
It could even be a genetic thing to have weak teeth? Who knows gives you something to think about though. X

I have the same problem with Doctors! I don’t understand why they are reluctant to explain what is going on....
I have had to research my MRI’s intensely and then get my doctor to confirm!!
Like yourself, it is because of the pain that I have been researching and learning to become my own advocate.
Glad I’m not alone on this (not that I would wish it on anyone)
