Re: Claustrophobia and MRIs

I had a knee MRI - no problem
I had a shoulder MRI - no problem
I had a Neck MRI - I was freaking out and had them pull me out - wicked anxiety - I then went through with it - like it has been said - I wasn't going to find out what my problem was unless I went through with it.

Good thing I did. Next time I want an OPEN MRI. I don't think I can handle it again. I am 6 ft 290 lbs. So I am very compact in there.

They had a framework around my head and that didn't help either. They ended up taking it off. I thought of the waves and blue sky and kept my eyes closed......
