I suspect you have curvature problems called scoliosis. There are no special exercises but some are better than others. Any exercise that uses natural movements such as walking are beneficial. Classic yoga when done correctly is also good. I use a mix of exercises. I am heading out now to do classic chi kung and martial arts. I also use different types of cardiovascular exercises and light weight lifting several times a week when outdoor activities slow down and I am forced inside. Sometimes I go for a walk simply to unwind and enjoy the view. On days I have to dig out from mountains of snow, I don't exercise. I dig.

I am bothered more at night with this problem. I do struggle with cold hands and feet when in the upright position and not so much when recumbant. I think my husband realizes that an upright mri would be the thing to do. I guess I have had a whip-like type motion due to falls. I've also had some falls which I think may have had an impact on the cervical spine ( wall face plant which resulted in a backward motion of my head and neck, a fall down six stairs, some falls where I've struck the back of my head). I guess I"ve lived a fall prone life. My daughter has had some unexplained bouts with diarhrea. She also has the cold hands problem. She also seems to struggle with mucuous issues. Am wondering if getting an upright mri for her might be advisible. I think we would stand a better chance of getting our pcp to order it. You were correct in remembering that we both had postpartum optic neuritis. I just find that odd. The same thing and the same eye.
