    Even though this article wasn't writen by a doctor it is something well known across medical practioners yet it's not bold to say many of them seem to ignore it.  How many people are ruled out simply on a test?
    Do your due dilegence, trust you know your body and question everything if it does not fit. Advocate for yourself and you will be suprised what will be revealed trusting your body and instinct.

    Ron, again, thank you for the reading material. Long ago when i started this journey I wish I would have had access to all this great information. And also the videos, What to bring to a spine surgery consultation and when you should see a doctor for treatment. Both of those could benefit a lot of people asking those very questions.

    Aaron, I agree. How many people have been ruled out by a test? But one thing the article stated was the patient has to be able to communicate their symptoms with their doctor. We, as in us the veterans, now know what to ask, what to say and do research and research and research.
