    If you are claustrophobic, then yeah, it'll be claustrophobic. They have Open MRI's.

    Not bad if you close your eyes. And yes it's fucking loud.

    I had one, it's not that bad, just imagine yourself laying on the beach, close your eyes and relax, it will be over before you know it.

    Be happy for modern medicine, before the MRI they probably would have had to cut you open to figure out your problem.

    tell them you are claustrophobic. they will probabaly say try it anyway but let them know you are nervous. i'd ask for a valium or 3.

    i was within seconds of yelling GET ME OUT OF HERE!! when it finally ended after i don't know how many minutes.

    i'm only kind of claustrophobic. it was ok at first but the longer it took, the more i started getting uncomfortable. i think if they would do a countdown loudly like - mr. sstressed, it will be 4 more minutes ... 3 more minutes...etc!

    good luck!

    I had one for my shoulder before surgery. I fell Asleep.

    The part that was worse was not the 6" long fat ass needle they used to inject fluid into the very middle of my torn up shoulder joint, but that I was held down and a nurse assistant had to pull my shoulder slightly out of joint, separating it enough to inject the contrast fluid. It was a tug of war of which was more uncomfortable and painful. After which I slept through most of the mri

    If you are claustrophobic, it's not going to be fun. Delay it and ask for an open one.

    It's extremely loud banging from the magnets. So loud you gotta wear ear plugs. It's severely claustrophobic. They will put a ball in your hand connected to a signal in the booth, if you become too claustrophobic and squeeze it, they will pull you out.

    You are literally slid into a coffin with your nose pressed to the ceiling. Tight as fuck. Take a Xanax before you go in.

    What are you getting checked out? I had my spine done and I don't believe my head was immersed in it. Plus I recall it being more open than the old ones gag look like an old school pencil sharpener

    The tube and the noise weren't so bad, it was the having to be completely still for an hour that sucked.

    Like you heard, it's very loud.

    And whatever you do, don't move a centimeter or they'd have to start from scratch - and that you don't want.

    Good luck. I hope everything works out OK.

    Yes, wasn't bad but tight spaces do not bother me.

    What's your ailment?

    Me too. I've had three MRIs - torn rotator cuff (right), ruptured pectoral tendon (left), torn biceps tendon (right). All suck because of the position you'll have to be in and you will need to remain still while the exam occurs (20-30 mins). That's the worst of it.

    Depends how big you are if your a skinny its not bad, but if you're on the bigger side ask for an open one. They do 6 test 5-15 minutes a pop. Just gotta be still. Keep your eyes closed. Its not as bad as ppl make it out.
