I am having a cervical & thoracic mri today (with and without contrast).
I have to admit I am having alot of anxiety about going into the mri and the thought of laying flat for 45 minutes is killing me.
My NS told me to take 6 mg of zanaflex (instead of my normal 4mg dose along with my painmeds) so that is my plan. I asked on the phone if they can pad the table. They said they could a little.
I have had several MRI's over the years and I never have had anxiety, but last time I had the thoracic mri I was in excruiating pain and I was shaking & crying. The results were some one blury. I know we are supposed to lay still and I tried but also last time she forgot to give me the hand held emergency button. What if I forget to ask for it and she forgets to hand it over?
Someone please tell me that the zanaflex will work...
