  1. I insisted on an MRI for both my back and shoulder. I was told I don't need one on both accounts, by both the PT and GP. I said to them, It's my money and my health. Why can't I have one.

  7. My GI wants to test me for celiac. I have microscopic colitis, osteopenia and lactose intolerance. I have been gluten-free for several years now. My doctor says maybe I haven't done a very good job because of cross contamination. I need to do a gluten challenge to be tested. Has anyone...
