Yes, this did sound like you had an anxiety attack. I had an MRI for my hearing. They enclosed my head in a box with a lid that only had slits for my eyes and nose because my head had to remain very still and then put my whole body in the machine. It was close to Christmas so I just closed my eyes and sang Christmas carols for 45 minutes. I was soooo happy when they pulled me out but that happiness disappeared because they put dye in my system and put me back in the machine for another 20 minutes!
No, MRI's aren't fun and if I have to have another one, I want an open MRI. If you are the least bit claustrophobic, that could send you into anxiety...and asthma added to the mixture sure didn't help. I hope you are better now.
