Re: Not the X-ray results I expected
I also had differing opinions on the results of tests that I had. Some docs claimed I had stenosis, some claimed I had facet joint arthritis, and didn't have stenosis, yet I had all the symptoms of stenosis and arthritis both, I couldn't stand long, walk long, now I can't sit long, leg cramps if I am up too long, so it was very frustrating, I knew I wasn't nuts and had better things to do than to make this up, yet they just said all these stemmed from my lower back problem, and still did not know the actual source. I had to keep complaining. I was then referred to a pm doc, who listened well, looked at my old MRI that was 2 years old, who then ordered MRI with contrast, problem found, and a reason for my pain. Facet arthritis, which I knew I had, AND 2 bulging disks, one which is pinching a nerve, which explained all of my other symptoms. I was being treated, or not treated, for the wrong thing. So keep at them like you plan to do and good luck!
