Mri finally booked

Hello all,
Well after months and months I have finally gotten the call for my mri for my neck issues. It has taken so long because I need to have a general anesthetic so it was a lengthy wait. My question is should I try to upset my neck/arm so things are bad when I go for the test? I'm sorry if it sounds like a totally ridiculous question. My neck issues seems to come and go, when I had the ct it did show bulging at 5,6, and 7 but it has simmered down a lot! My lower back..I cannot say the same, it is getting worse.
So I really apologize if I cause some head shakes, I just want them to be able to see the issues. Or does it always stay the way it was seen on the ct?? Thanks



  • Just before my lumbar MRI scan, I felt a lot better and was worried that they would think I was a fraud and say there was nothing wrong.

    Well, when I got the results, they said that things were worse than they had thought, and it was amazing that I was managing to walk about with the severe compression that I had on my cord and nerve roots. As I was feeling so much better, we decided to wait and see how I got on. A few months later, I begged to see the surgeon. I had fusion surgery three weeks after seeing him!

    I had a cervical MRI on my neck last Friday. Again my symptoms had improved, slightly this time. I am still waiting to get the results, so can't tell you what happened this time.

    If it was me, I definately wouldn't try to upset things! You might make things worse for yourself permanently!!!

    Hope your scan gives a realistic impression of what is going on.

    Please let us know how you get on. :-)
