Q
Vanishing ribs

I went to the doctor and they took x-rays. They took of my neck and abdomen. The x-ray showed narrowing between two of my neck vertebrates and spasm as well as the points of my ribs looks like they crumbling away. Doctor said it is nothing to worry about but why does it look like my ribs are deteriorating/vanishing? I strongly feel it should not be ignored. Please help.

Hi there
I have too little information to really make a sensible comment, but if this really worries you, please ask your doctor to send you for a second opinion. You have a right to a second opinion.
