Hi, everyone.  I had my first MRI on monday, my Neuro is checking for possible MS.  Boy, I never thought I was clastophobic (sp wrong), when cover mask like was over my head,I got panicky, I wanted out of there...I wish they had a panic button to push to get out.
 
I was told not to move, this made me more nervous.  Then my right side by my eye started twitching really bad, I was just thinking this twitching is making it worse.
I slowly calmed myself down, thinking happy thoughts...like my new grandbaby, this helped soo much!  Then when noise started' I just felt ok I'm at a concert, lol.
 
I thought I wasnt going to be able to complete the test but I did. When I was getting dressed I took my shirt out of locker, put it on...then I opened my locker again and it was empty, I paniked for a second,thought oh no where my blouse?, then I realized I had it on. Totally brain fog moment...
Now I'm wondering if the twitching that I had for like two minutes during start test, will that show/, I did tell the DR. there that I was twitching in begining
 
Yesterday, Neuro Dr., asked if I wanted to get an earlier appointment for my test results, I go next Wednesday.
Thanks!
Syl

from my own experience the twitching could have been caused by the machine itself. my hands twitch everytime im in there, really its my fingers. the hannibal mask lol is a little panic inducing. that is the trick to think happy thoughts.
next time u feel overwhelmed in there u can talk or move. they can hear and see u and will pull u out.
Hope everything goes well!

I have another brain MRI scheduled in May as a six month follow-up. My spinal indicated MS however, my MRI's have been clear so far. I was given a panic button to use on my last several MRI's but didn't need to use it. I hate the noise that those machines produce, I wouldn't want to go in there with a bad headache. One place I went to gave me a CD of the MRI which I loaded into my PC and was able to look at before seeing the doctor. They transmit a copy to the doctor electronically.

I hope that your scan is clear as well.

Hi, my MRI results were negative. DR. did say somethig is happening with my nervous system, he said I don"t have MS, wants to do an EMG test. As soon as possible. He again had me do a quick walk, heel to toe, he checked my sensitivity from feet to calves with a sharp pin, I only felt it more on my calves.

I know I have the symptoms (MS hug, leg/arm numbness, Elec. shock like feeling down neck?back, heavy legs? arms, bowel problems, lingering head pain lasts all day, vertigo, vision blurry, others can"t remember right now), that act more like MS, should I ask him to do an MRI of spine too?
Also, this dr. said..."I bet when you tell doctors of your symptoms, they look at you all complexed", I said yes they do.

I hope this Dr. will be able to help me, he siad there is definitly something going on.
One thing, I'm scared to do the EMG test, I heard that it hurts, I feel like cancelling it, I wonder what that test may tell him.

Thanks, just wanted to share my results

Hi Syl,

That's good news that your MRI results were negative. I have been working with a neuro for about six months now and he has had me complete a battery of tests to try to identify the cause of my persistant numbness and brain fog. I've done MRI's of the spine and brain, lumbar puncture, EMG and EEG. Even though some of these tests were not fun, I was determined to find out what was causing my symptoms. I do have lyme disease but, I'm also concerned about MS too. You have to keep testing to find out whats going on. Hope that you find out what your dealing with soon.
