    Hello, I was just wondering if I were to have DDD would my Chiropractor have been able to see (diagnose) it when I had my x-rays done? I dont think I have it but I would like to be sure you know?

    No, FM/CFS as for as I know, cannot be diagnosed by x-rays or any other tests, except for the trigger points for FM.

    He could tell from where the pain is located with FM, but that would be about all.

    Shalom, Shirl

    Yes Degenerative Disk Disease can usually be seen on X-ray. However, the docs would do other radiographic images, such and an MRI, CatScan or Mylegram (yuck!) to determine the extent and the danger of affecting nerves or blood vessels.

    I have this myself and it does show on Xrays.
