Question of low signal focus in the region of pituitary gland on T-2weighted images. Further evaluation with mri of the brain is recommended if clinically indicated. Mydoc says the spongy area between my discs is drying out ,and maybe pt and chiropractor will help, Can you tell me why I am in so much pain? Do I need 2nd opinion? She also mentioned possibly traction? I am only 33yrs old., female 5ft. 3" and 118 pounds.
