In brief: May Relate, But...

Ct&mri typically done in static position, does not show what happens in motion or other positions & most importantly does not show pain or function, these are clinical/judgement issues.
Pain meds listed usually a trap & muddy thinking. Docs paid for ds+dxtx work-effort, not your success. Usually much better help available but have to search, insurance ?es costs & ?es quality vs. Self-pay. Sad !
