I can imagine I hope the results arrive as soon as for you. I am reading througj the MRI section in the forum and it sounds like alot of dont like the confined space part! I hope you can destract yourself to take the edge off the wait. My dad had to wait for his MRI results last year and he always walked in the evening then once he was back home he watched DVDs to take his mind off the wait, luckily he did not have to wait that long and the results came back ok. Best wishes for christmas and hope you get good news so you can have a positive start to the new year :)

This is a copy of a post i made in february
End of February I was told I must have this done and they offered me sedation (for me not a good idea)
:hugs:I realy do understand your fear:hugs:
I was supposed to have MRI in January 09 but i freaked - had to go back in march - From january my PAs were really bad every day.
SO I phoned the MRI unit and asked to speak to someone who could explain what happened during the scan.


I got this wonderful person who told in detail that
the noise was very loud (earplugs supplied) like when a washing machine is on its final spin:blush: about 1 minute then quiet - sections can be as long as 3/4 mins BUT BEARABLE
They do separate scans for different parts of the head.
There is a short silent gap (few seconds) between scans.
in each gap they asked if i was ok - did i want to carry on?
25 minutes it took.
if you need to push the button to get you out - TRY to wait for the 'quiet' bit then they won't have to do that bit again.
I had my scan done and was walking on air i was so happy.
The nurses were expecting me because i had phoned and said how bad my panic is and they were VERY understanding.
I hope this is of some help
Best wishes
June
PS I had to wait 3 weeks for the result - all clear:yesyes::yesyes:

Has anyone heard of the open scanner ? I can't have an MRI in the tunnel, i get panic attacks and have claustrophobia. The open scanner is like a burger and you are in the middle of it....the top part is still quite close but as it is open all around you, you can move your head and look out. I highly recommend it...ask to see if there is one in your area. I'm lucky enough to have one at the Nuffield Orthopaedic in Oxford..but if you don't ask then you don't get....best of luck to anyone who needs to have an MRI !:)

jim I took a relaxing CD with me when I had mine done. The nurse also gives you a panic button if you are feeling stressed.
