I had an X Ray done on me when I went to the hospital, now experiencing extreme discomfort and sharp pains.

The reason an x-ray machine can’t do this is like the reason you can’t cut through a steel door with a butter knife. The issue isn’t that there’s a safety guard on the butter knife that a malicious operator could disable. The issue is that it’s a butter knife, so it isn’t sharp or strong enough to cut through a steel door. Similarly, a medical x-ray machine is just nowhere near powerful enough to cause the damage you’re describing.

I’m sorry for your pain, and I really hope you’re able to get medical treatment that helps with it. But it really can’t have been the x-day machine, and there are lots of other things it could much morenplausibly be.
