My son was diagnosed with mild scoliosis last fall. Recently he has been experiencing severe, debilitating back pain, and after an MRI a few days ago, we were told that his spinal cord is not "normal", and that he has spinal stenosis, possible tethered cord and his spine is straight where it is supposed to curve, and in the places it curves, it curves the opposite direction it is supposed to. Today, he woke up with a severe headache. He has had pretty frequent headaches in recent months (several times a week) but he said this is the worst, and describes it as a "massive headache". Could the headaches be related to the spinal cord issues?
