Around here we'd find out at the end of the week if there's nothing severe. I'm not sure if that's how it would be for you though. Perhaps at the end of the day?

I'm not sure how long those take to get results. If you haven't gotten them yet, maybe you could call & ask when to be expecting them. Maybe that would help you relax a little until that point, or you could save your worrying for that day & not have to suffer until then. Keep us posted!

MRI results in a big hospital are usually read by Interventinal radiology. it may take 2-5 days to get your report.  If they should see something right away I am sure you would receive a phone call but not within an hour.  That is pretty fast.

I usually never hear about mine until about a week later. Remember that the radiologist usually has many many MRI's to read not just yours, so it takes more than a few hours to get results. Generally when you don't hear anything on a test it usually means good news as there is nothing found. If you are concerned then call your docs office and ask when you can expect to know the results. But I think it is highly unlikely that you will hear anything right away.

My mom has always had to wait a week or so for her results. She had one done 2 weeks ago and got the results on tuesday.

So a week is IMO a normal wait time of these.

Yes if they saw something they would call you, but again not within one hour. I think you wouldn't hear for at least a few days minimum if they found something. Try not to get yourself all worked up about this. Call you doctor if you have any further questions, as we are not medical professionals. Good luck!

True, "No news is good news." I like that. Rose, try to stay calm. I'm sure your MRI is going to be negative. Nothing will be found! Relax and have a cup of decaffeinated tea. Carol

thank you everyone. i did call the doctors office today for my results. they said they don't give results over the phone; thats why they give us follow up appts, but she did say if something was wrong they would have called me by now....so i'm still keeping my fingers crossed.....please keep me in mind....i guess part of having anxiety is second guessing everyone?????????????

my appt with the neurologist is this thursday for the results...

Great! They didn't find anything wrong and that's what they're going to tell you at the appointment. Stop thinking about it and stop worrying. It's a vicious cycle that we could go on and on about. Be happy that they found nothing. In the meantime, write down any questions you want to ask the neurologist when you see him/her.

You need to celebrate the good news! I'm really happy for you!

What they said. yeah
 
I know it's easier said than done but really try writing down any & all questions you might have between now and then and that way you can get a big load off your chest.
 
Best of Luck!

I second-guess most people as well, and it seems the 'smarter' they're supposed to be the more I do it....strange, huh.
 
Anyway, I never thought about what you said but the additional co-pay in todays times of greed wouldn't surprise me a bit, but hopefully I'm wrong.

That's great news! Can you tell us what your symptoms were? That might be comforting to some with similar anxiety symptoms.

Glad to hear everything was OK. I do think the docs want another copay. I've never had to make an appt to get results, especially since they were normal. Hmmmm.

hello
my symptoms were pretty strange, and scary.....for the past year and a half i was experience a numbing/tingly sensation in my head, face, jaw - actually all over my head and it would change to different places throughout the day....then i would feel tightness/pressure in my head and face/ear area - it really drove me nuts;. i went thru a depression and was petrified something was wrong with me. i also had numbing /tingly feelings in my legs too, but i believ ethat is from my herniated disc in my back. that sometimes happens.....

good luck to you all, and know that anxiety can cause some very very strange symptoms that are so scary, they would lead you to belive something is really wrong....i go to a psychiatrist now - hopefully she will help me calm my health fears......

I am so happy that your MRI results were normal.  Now you can work on the anxiety with your Pdoc.  Thank you for the well wishes.  :-)
 
I hope you stick with us and let us know how you are doing.  We are all here for you.
