Customer Question

I have an X-ray with 2 spots I would like to know if I should be concerned about
JA: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

JA: Have you had any recent injuries? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

Expert:  Dr Chip (M.D.) replied 1 month ago.

Got it thanks

But just to check--your arms really aren't visible in that shot?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
My arms are being held in a triangle shape upwards.
The top left is where my upper arm is and top right is other arm. Pics were for my spine but you can see the black dots in top left correct

If those aren't my arms, then what? And are the black dots concerning
Expert:  Dr Chip (M.D.) replied 1 month ago.

I see now

Nothing at all worrisome here--those black dots are air in your stomach--they really aren't in your arm but your arm is superimposed over your stomach there

So there's really nothing abnormal in your arm

Please let me know if you need any more information

Are you referring to the dots at the bottom, I was told those are air bubbles. But the ones at the top left corner?
That's not my arm?
Ok .
Expert:  Dr Chip (M.D.) replied 1 month ago.

Those are just superimposed soft tissue over the bones--I still don't see anything abnormal there
