    Hi, Ruthie.

    Your doctor may not have thought that an X ray was an appropriate diagnostic test for your history and symptoms. X rays are best for looking at bones and internal organs. If you had reported having a physical injury that could have broken a bone, he would probably have agreed that an X ray would be a good idea.

    Your symptoms sound more neurological than bone-related. Sounds more like a neuropathy. I don't know if your doctor would refer you to a neurologist, but if so, that might be a promising way to go.

    Best regards,

    Rich
