I have the date of my first MRI scan (for my brain and spine!) it's on the 9th August!
My nerves have calmed down a lot since a few backs back, and my symptoms have, for the most part gone! Having said that though, I am still getting numbness ('heaviness' really, weird feeling) tingling in my left cheek and numbness and tingling in my legs. I can't tell if those symptoms are actually getting more persistant or not. I wish it was easier to tell what was going on.
The brain fog and fatigue have really, really eased up. I am no longer walking around like a complete zombie, staring blanky ahead for ages. I have become really health-anxious though: the slightest thing I end up worrying about >.<
I HAVE noticed though, that the more stressted I am, and also the more conscious of the numbness I am, the worse it gets. If I take my mind off it, I don't notice nearly as much and it doesn't feel nearly as bad.
I have one question about the MRI scan: Can I wear an underwired bra? Lol!
I don't know what the material in the wiring is... is it usually metal in there?? Haha I feel silly that the thought of being braless makes me anxious!
I'm hoping it should go well though. Is being in the scan ANYTHING like being in a lay-down sunbed but with added noise? Does it usually take long to get the results of it back?
Please wish me luck! <3 I will report straight back here once it's all done and dusted.
Much love to you all!
