    X-Ray wun show much unless its an obvious problem.

    MRI would probably show. But den again, persuade ur specialist to send u for an MRI. Can claim medical insurance. hehehehe....

    Oh well, at least ur X-Ray din show anything. Mine's so obvious that it popped straight out on the X-Ray and my specialist said I had the knees of a 70yr old man when I'm just about a quarter-way thru the lifespan of an average man. Final checkup's tomorrow. Zzzz

    what am i suppose to do?

    My back have persistent sores and pain, and i cannot stand long, else the back will be unbearable, the pain.

    the x ray does not show my back bone got problem, so SAF will not give a damn, and still i need to go for IPPT, which sure fail, as i cannot do sit up. But i am having problem w my back, so what shd i do man........i dun mind go reservist, but this stupid systems..........sigh.......
    I am facing the same problem bro. My knees are giving me problem. I have problem jumping & running. Simple walking up & down the stairs will also make my knee hurt. Consulted 2 doctors (1 pte & 1 gov't). Went thru some physiotherapy now feeling much better but the pain is still there and becos X-ray doesn't show much, still got to go for IPPT/RT. How to run & jump? Sigh....

    Anyway, on a side note, the gov't doctor that I visited sucks big time. He has got a very, very, very bad attitude. Think he's the head or some senior there, but very 'guai lan'. Feel like punching him in the face everytime I go to him.

    hi there ..

    going through MRI is an expensive procedure but yields good results. MRI is much more thorough and results are far more clearer than an Xray.

    mris cost from a few hundred to a thousand plus..

    try going for physio .. and get a 2nd opinion ... meantime, dont carry anything heavy . ease the spine for a while lad..
