You know I believe there are new techniques with regard to the MRI & or CT scans..there may be a standing type of imaging ? Maybe with pre-medicating prior to the imaging, i.e. pain or anti-anxiety? I can say as fact the imaging itself (without contrast) does not last long (I’ve had at least 8 of these done before! Anyway just suggestions!
I've heard of a standing MRI, but ... dn't kw of anywhere around me! I cn't stand up straight, my back wn't let me!! I can't have a Mammogram either. I've tried. Guess I'll worry about that if the time ever comes I need one, ay...? I tried to have a test done once on my spine & they stuck me & stuck me & cldn't get thru, man ... did that hurt!!! Cold & windy here in NJ today! But ... pretty good day for me:) Great day for a cpl football games!! Enjoy your day my friends...!!!🏈AND~ hope y'all who are in/near Buffalo are safe & warm:)💙❄💙
What if the only thing you can have is, (maybe) an Xray? I cn't get an MRI or a CTScan, what else is there? I cn't lay flat on back or stomach. I can't even really lay on my side(s) either! I hvn't needed any further testing, but ... am afraid someday I will!! What happens then...? Anyone have a similar problem? Enjoy your evening my friends!!!😊
Agree with previous comments, further imaging with MRI and or CT (“cat scan”), would probably be useful as well
X-rays, good rheumatologist and don’t stop until you get answers.
