Discussions that mention valium

Back Problems board

I had an MRI with contrast this AM and was very nervous as I have reactions to CT contrast. They assured me this was different and it was. They made me take two Valium before I went just because I was SURE I was going to have a reaction. They injected the contrast in very slow and I didn't even know it was in. After all you've been through this will be a piece of cake. I agree that they can see so much more with the contrast. I am anxiously awaiting my results.
I've only been to one PM doc and although I know he is clinically very good...his bedside manner stinks:eek: I've heard of others on this board with PM horror stories. Wouldn't you think if you decide to devote your life to those in constant pain you could have a little compassion and empathy????
Best of luck!
