We were looking at this video yesterday. I realize by researching that the Carnetts test is what he needs, yes, but how do you get a doctor to do it? They don't want you telling them what to do.....I will take any advice given

Well, the first thing to do would be to perform the test yourself at home. You don't need a doctor to do that.

Get your husband to lie flat on his back and ask him where the pain is. Press down on the painful spot and then get him to raise both his legs at the same time using his stomach muscles. If his pain gets worse, then that is a positive test response. You can then go to the doctor and say you have a positive Carnett's test and what is he/she going to do about it.

They should at least do a diagnostic injection as described in some of the earlier posts here.
If they refuse to do anything, well, then it's time to find a new doctor, I guess.

There is a doctor in Utah of Nevada who surgically treat ACNES but cutting you open is required. I was fortunate to find Dr Thomas Gillespie at St Joseph's Medical Center who cured me via Robotic Laparoscopically. Virtually no down time - amazing. Went home that afternoon cured.
