Patient :Hello I have a complicated question.ok I recently had a car accident in May 2013 I have four discs that have been hurt and the doctors are saying that it is ddd now I don't agree with the conclusion because I have never had any back pain nor difficulties doing anything until the car accident I also had an x ray done in October of 2010 that shows no problem at all but the doctors have not seen this x ray because it was done in a different country with that said I would like to know if what the doctors say that I have ddd is because of assumption
