    I'm begging for HELP!!! Telling the truth or a lying friend??
    An_246635 posted:
    A friend came to me the other day at work and stated that his doctor told him that he had a hair-line fracture to one of the vertebrae in his neck. I'm not too sure which one since he didn't really give me any specifics. He did state that his doctor said that he didn't need any treatment, he didn't feel any type of pain, and isn't on any medications for it.

    We work in an office setting, so we sit and stare at computers for majority of the day. I also saw him cracking his neck (like how people crack their knuckles) and I thought this was odd, granted his supposed hair-line fracture.

    Could he be telling the truth?? I'm doubting the situation mainly because my cousin had a hair-line fracture on his elbow and they put his entire arm in a cast. Can someone please help me understand?
