    it was horrible. jesus christ, getting shoved in that tube for 90 minutes was the worst. i have broad shoulders so my shoulders were crushed together so i could fit in. i made the mistake of opening my eyes when i was in there and i looked up and saw the top of the tube was about 2 inches above my nose. i had to meditate the whole time or else i would a gone crazy. oh and i had a itch on my nose that started 2 minutes after the mri started and wouldn't go away.

    those things sucks.

    i should find out before the end of the week. the mri i had used a contrast dye. it was crazy when they injected it through my iv during the mri. it was all hot and burned and then when the mri went on, i felt like a magnetic pull in my ribs and legs. not sure why. i don't think the dye has magnetic properties or nothing.

    had an MRI once and I was fine except for one thing... the lady tech who was running the procedure would chime in every 19 seconds asking in a panic voice, "are you okay!?!?!? are you still okay!!! what about now!?!?!?!" and each time I would say every calmly, "I'm fine, everything is fine thank you" and the 379th time I asked to please stop asking me how I'm doing.

    Did you have to take the medicine that gives the feeling of peeing yourself, while in the machine? That was worse than the actual MRI :cry:

    If you've had enough of them, they become routine. The noise is annoying, especially the DINK DINK DINK DINK DINK DINK DINK sound.

    I think I know someone who actually did pee herself in the machine. Is that even possible?

    90 minutes?? damn.

    after a few minutes i was on the verge of yelling GET ME OUT OF HERE! then they were done. 90 minutes? they'd have to knock me out.

    i don't like to be restricted that much. unfortunately, i didn't realize it until i'd been in the machine for a few minutes. :eek:
