I think next time I see him he was going to give me a copy of the x-ray, lol. Surprisingly ( & thankfully), ALL the vertebra & disks are in really good shape. It's just that I'm hyper flexible and since I ride, the riding muscles are super strong and the opposing ones barely exist. So I have a lot of stregth training to do to counter act the "riding" muscles.

The flexibilty on top of the muscle strength has started to make 2 of the finger thingys on the vertebra start to rub when I move a certain way, which is why I started seeing this Dr.

Several years ago I had an eye dr find an oddity in one eye. He got so excited he shot out of the room to find others to come see. Glad I could make his day. : )

Thought: If our horses had all the conformation flaws we do, what do you think our value would be?

Of course this means you have to donate your body to science when you die. I am, signed my remains to be a medical school cadaver, so post mortum I will be a medical professor, cool huh?

I was at the doctor for some unrelated ailment, but asked about this conundrum I'd been dealing with. If I laugh too hard or cough when I eat, I get food wedged up in the back of my nose. Really weird and really painful leaving me to either try to swallow repeatedly until it comes down or blow it out my nose. I asked him about it and he was just fascinated and attributed it to having an overreactive cough reflex most likely caused by having bronchitis all the time. o.O

On the subject of wisdom teeth, I only had 2. Evolution ftw.

Being an oddity is always fun. I'm naturally missing three teeth. Two incisors on top (not the middle ones, the ones next to the middle) and a premolar. I still have the baby tooth where my premolar should be, but had to get implants for my incisors. Of course, I just recently found out that I do, in fact, have all four of my wisdom teeth, and they all need to be removed -.- Of course my wisdom teeth couldn't be the ones I was missing!

I only had 4 wisdom teeth, but they were growing in horizontal instead of vertical, and I was 14 when I had them removed. I saw the oral surgeon that removed them a few years ago, he told me that I was the youngest person that he'd ever even heard of having them removed much less having them period.
