    Spot on xray
    missist posted:
    so I was at the spine dr today and got an xray. it didn't id any issued with lumbar spine, so he ordered an mri-that's next. Only thing is there is a pretty well defined looking dark spot on one of my pelvic bones--I think its called ilium. He said it was 'air' or a 'shadow.' and that the mri would show everything better.

    so I have this photo copy of the xray and I keep staring at it.

    I guess I'll be happy when I get the mri--cuz it just looks so suspicious to me.

    Anyhow, echo tomorrow am, and neuro in the afternoon.

    busy me. hopefully things are fine and all I need is some PT again, maybe migraine RX. But then there's always other possibilities too, so I guess I'll just have to not think about those.

    I come from a long line of hypochondriacs though, so I know I will obsess about this spot LOL. its just in my genetic code.
