MRI's
« on: Jan 15, 17, 12:29 PM »
Had to have an MRI today,

I was told it would be noisy & would last half an hour, but they didn't tell me there'd be strong vibrations as well, (a bit concerning) .....
has anyone else had one ?

I haven't had one but Julie has, she doesn't recall much vibration. The are supposed to be noisy as the magnets turn on and off though, that could be the source.

I've had a couple. Yeah, "Noisy" doesn't go half way to describing it. Imagine what it's like for those of us with tinnitus...

I've had three or four and how noisy they are and how much vibration you get depends on what part is being scanned and how well maintained the machine is. Obviously head scans are the noisiest, but I've not had a problem with the noise nor have I felt any significant vibration.

I had ear plugs to help with the noise, it was for my head & neck.

Thanks Kat,  :)

I see the neurologist in about ten days, seems there's pressure on the spinal cord.  ::)

They're going to inject a couple of places in my neck tomorrow, don't think it's much of a fix myself.  ::)

I had six, recently. If anything, they've made things worse. :(

So, good luck, with yours.

Well I've had the injections into the base of the nerves in the neck, it wasn't too pleasant, but I'm feeling less pain at the moment, I suppose it will last a few weeks.  :-\

What did they inject? Steroids?

I seem to have been in and out of hospital every day, of late. Got to go back, tomorrow, too. :(

Yes, Dextomethasone, in & out of CT scan with every stage of injecting further in case of hitting an artery & causing a stroke, & being taped into position so as not to move a fraction, ... guess you know all about that.  ;)

I hope there's eventually some relief for you, but it doesn't sound like you're very confident either.  :(  ;)

Oh, no. Mine weren't as complicated, as yours. They just prepped me up, took me into theatre and stuck pointy things in me. (Horrid, coz I'm needle-phobic).

Oddly, it seems they've made the pain move to a slightly different place, in my shoulder...

Yes it numbs one part so you start to feel the less painful bits.  ;)

My shoulder has improved a little, but I'm getting more ear ache now because all the muscles etc. are so tight.  ;)

I can't say the less painful bits are less painful... :(

What I need's a good spliff. Pity the guy I used to get the stuff off's vanished...

I had an MRI years ago, for a kidney scan, but I got headphones so they played music so that drowned out any noise. The only thing I found was it was a bit claustrophobic being enclosed in that tunnel.

I just laid there and imagined a naked woman, in there, with her boobies jiggling around with the vibration.

Took my mind off things...  :)
