mri next week

Hi guys just an update got my mri on 16th Head Cervical Thoracic and Lumbar just a bit worried as ive been in a lot of pain this last week especially neck shoulder and middle back with burning sensations.What im worried about is the length of time i will be layed down in one position.Any advice anyone.

Hi Sparky,

They will do your head first normally then take you out of the scanner then work their way down with breaks as you need them.

The staff who did my MRI were fantastic and made sure at each section I was happy and comfy. You have a buzzer with you so any problems and the scan is stopped and they sort it out.

Thankyou horsemad you have reassured me i just thought id be laid on my back for couple hours breaks yes im sure be okay.Best wishes to you
