My friend has just been diagnosed with scholosis, he seems to be very unhappy. What is scholosis? Does it affect you in a significant way? He has scholosis in his lower back, and recently quit work from an environment which required a lot of heavy lifting. I hear that he’s getting better, but from time to time the pain seems to come back, does it really hurt that much to have scholosis? He’s back has hurted so much at work that he’s had to go home early, and this has persisted for more than half a year before he actually quit.
