Back Problems board


Im set to have an mri scan in 6 days time...and counting.I have suffered from lower back pain for 2 and a half years now.Im only 17, and my life is already very resticted and the pain is unbearable!I also suffer from clinical depression which i think my spinal problems is a large contributor to. Currently i am taking (UK names) Dihyrocodeine 60mg, Diclofenac sodium 100mg and co-codamol 30/500 and Lustral (Zoloft) 100mg for my depression.Nothing seems to help!

Anyway to my point, my mri scan is very near and i have closely looked at a survey type information sheet i am to carefully fill in and hand to them on the day.One of the questions is "what is the date of your last menstrual cycle?"...well ive realised that i will actualy be on my period on this date and am therefore wondering whether this will effect the scan and whether i will have to take it some other time??Of course i will quietly tell someone when im there, but im just worried that this will effect the scan some home...Ooohhh being a women at times is annoying!
Any replies would be greatly appreciated soon as im worrying.
Thank you. Holly.
