I have 2 curvatures on my spine and several injuries on my tailbone and varicose veins on my left leg. I'm in pain from neck to ankles, why ?
It depends...: The cervical spine can appear more straight on x-ray if a patient is having neck pain. This is caused by muscle spasms and how a patient might hold their neck when in pain.
