Our expert says:
You are quite correct when you say that repeat scanning will not help. Once a person has been scanned and nothing abnormal shows, then it is a waste of time to do further scans. Unfortunately x-rays only show if there is something wrong with the bones, so taking x-rays will not help either.
The best advice that I can give you is, if the medicines that the doctor prescribed are not helping, then you must go back to the doctor, who may want to prescribe some other medication. It often happens that when one medication doesn't help, another one will work.
