Hi...what u r describing is called chiari malformation.

With chiari u can get both migraine HA's and HA's from the chiari.....ur scoliosis can also be due to another related condition called tethered cord.

Chiari can go yrs b4 the symptoms bcome too much....sometimes bcuz chiari is congetnital we the patient is unaware of the symptoms bcuz we accept alot of it as normal aches and pains.

I invite u to join the chiari forum here on MedHelp......
