A 46-year-old member asked:

Why might it be that my scoliosis interferes with my stomach and cause bad gas?

No relation: Typically, there is no relation between scoliosis and stomach/gas issues. I would seek medical treatment in your area as there is no connection. If there is severe curvature, the bowels could conceivably become constricted, but this is rare and a reason for surgical correction.
