Have scoliosis. Feeling of bruise in back, sore to touch, pain. Normal X-ray. What is this?

I have scoliosis and have the feeling of a very bruised vertebrae in my middle back, it is very sore to touch, and aches when not even touched, heat seems to help-it feels bruised on the bone itself and not the surrounding mucsles. X-ray apparently showed nothing, and didn t the dr wasnt even told that I had scoliosis from the x-ray (It has not healed itself, unless a modern miracle, as in Dec 2011 I was x-rayed for severe bronchitis and it showed scoliosis still. the Doctors seem to fob me off, saying with anti inflamatories it will go away but it has been 3 months with no improvment. As it is my spine I am obviously worried abuot what could be causing this, and future implications it may have. Please if you have any idea on what this may be, please please let me know.

Thanks for writing to us.
This seems to be a positional anomaly. The muscle stiffness could be caused by the improper posture and can be taken care of by taking muscle relaxants, hot fomentation and improvisation of your body posture. Physiotherapy is also helpful in such cases.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
