how do you stay calm iin a MRI test..

hey hb. i am having my mri test of my brain tommorrow.. I just had an MRA DONE friday.. i almost passed out from claustrophia and tightly closed in.. Its a sitting open mri, but still i feel enclosed, and nobody is there to talk to me.. All i hear is this loud machine over my head making loud noise. They cant lower the volume they told me. any advice would be helpful..

Re: how do you stay calm iin a MRI test..

I know this is a little late but for me if I have an MRI scheduled I call the place where it is going to be at and have them set up to medicate me. I don't do MRI's well at all and sometimes that is the only way to do it. Some places will let you bring a friend in to sit a bit away from you and talk to. Best bet is to always call the place it is going to be at and explain your problem and ask them how they can help you.
