A scan might be more helpful, you can get a CT scan
that is less expensive and less bother than an MRI
, I think your regular doc can order one for you. I've had X-rays before, and while they do show a lot, I was so surprised when years after I had tore up my foot somehow and X-ray said I was fine, I had a scan done of that same area as part of a body scan, and do you know they found fractures in my feet!!! No wonder it hurt so much!!!
