All that will happen if you do need to ask a question is that they may need to take the image again, from the point of movement, which will add additional time to the scan. As far as what would cause such a sensation; ask the doctor that ordered the MRI to check with a radiologist to find out that answer. It may very well be important, but if they don't know from you that it's a problem that you encountered, then you may never find out. It may very well be nothing of any consequence.
My Doctor concerned with the sensxory disturbance and being unable to stand with my eyes shut, refered me the Neuro, and sent me off to get an MRI of my Brain. Here it goes .

Normally MRI techs will remove all metallic jewelry etc prior to an MRI scan. A cisternogram is a different type of scan altogether from an MRI scan, although metal objects still need to be removed, and could cause 'artifact'/an artifical black spot (area of decreased radioactive tracer uptake) if not removed.
PET Scan You will be asked to remove any clothing, jewelry, or other objects that may interfere with the scan. If you are asked to remove clothing, you will be given a gown to wear. You will be asked to empty your bladder prior to the start of the procedure. One or two intravenous (IV) lines will be started in the hand or arm for injection of the radionuclide. For some examinations, the radionuclide may be inhaled in a gas form rather than given through an IV.
Hey, Just an update on how things are I went back to hospital and my doctor decided to give me an MRI scan soon. I'm just waiting for a reply from the hospital for an appiontment. Hopefully all will be explained soon. P.
Hi there, I am so sorry you are having all this pain. You need to be seen by a rheumatologist. They can check and see if you have rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, ankylosing spondylitis, etc. I have arthritis in my spine and I get pain similar to yours and I take a bunch of medication but it doesn't take the pain completely away. I feel for ya, Sweetie. Sorry it has taken so long for a response. I'm sure others here will chime in but I wanted to welcome you to the forum.
which deliver extremely weak levels of radiation per scan. According to the American College of Radiology (ACR), for example, "backscatter technology" delivers radiation equivalent to "flying inside an aircraft for two minutes at 30,000 feet.
Iridologist, Pathologist, Neurologist, Urologist, MRI scan, & GP (local doctor) and MS community support worker to run through injecting drugs. I am the biggest sceptic but a friend begged me to see this Iridologist. I saw her and said my health was good but just wanted a check up. I nearly fell off my chair with the first three questions she asked: 'Do you get headaches?' I do get them from now from spinal pressure but I lied and said no. 'You can't tolerate fatty food can you?
My arms are sore as hell, my strength is down to almost zero in my right (dominant) arm --- I had a CT scan. So, now, after a series of C-spine MRI's. a CT scan, nerve conduction test and standard exrays - FIVE different doctors have said there is severe stenosis and impingement at C5, 6 7 and T1-2. Oh yes, a neuro confirmed FMS...that was diagnosed by my original surgeon as "alodynia" for phantom pain with no source. He left the area in a hurry 6 years ago. Gee, I wonder why.
The only thing I can say that you will not be able to get MRI scan if you need one because of the metal inside you., Best of luck. Sunes.
Migrane related. I get migranes maybe 3 or 4 times a year, but never at the same time as the vibrations in my head, so i never thought to link them. At any rate, I still get the vibration sensations quarterly and the migranes about the same, but at least I know it's not anything really serious. Good Luck!

I'm allergic to jewelry that's not pure gold or silver. I get horrible rashes. I thought maybe all my problems were a result of my numerous mercury amalgam fillings I've had since I was a small child. I was going to get them all removed but my doctor doesn't believe it's the problem. If I had mercury poisoning, my hair would be falling out. She doesn't believe that cholation therapy is safe. I'll just keep looking for answers like all the rest of you!
She has been to eye doctors, skin doctors, and they are just trying different meidications with no luck. She is alergic to some metals in jewelry, and that this might be an allergic reaction to titanium. Is there anyone else with this possible problem.
I have played around making fiber jewelry, knitting and goofing off. I still have the nasty fatigue, weak right side, incontinence (I'll be commenting on Laura's Botox soon), trigeminal neuralgia, and spasticity, but the Tysabri seems to be keeping it all in check. I asked for some physical therapy last spring to help my increasing weakness. That, apparently was my mistake. On May 30 while getting into my car to go to PT I tripped - I wasn't paying attention.
The funny part was seeing my navel piercing jewelry show up on the flouroscopy picture. LOL I look so straight, the nurses were chuckling and saying "hey, we got ourselves a sexy mama here and we didn't even know it" I was glad they had a sense of humor. Basically, my Doc wants me to have fusion, and the surgeons asked him to be sure I had this injection done first, as it is diagnostic for them whether I respond to it or not. Doc says I need fusion.
And now i have just had another ct scam and mri. The ct scan shows anther pinched nerve at c7-t1. and the mri should be back this week. Does this ever end and how often does the nerve get pinched again, and my hands are really bad with pain and numbness, my head hurts so bad that no pain meds will help.
You can evalute for this with an upper GI series or upper endoscopy (for an ulcer) or obtaining pancreatic enzymes (via the blood) or a CT scan to evaluate for pancreatitis. If these tests are negative, you can consider musculoskeletal causes or nerve impingement. An MRI of the affected area can be considered if this is suspected. These options can be discussed with your personal physician. Followup with your personal physician is essential.
Last night i was sweating and my skin was warm to touch and yet it was cold to me. I had a ct scan in jan/feb time and was told it was normal...mri about 3 1/2 years ago which apparently was ok. I have an mri of my brain this sunday evening and even though i obviously do not want to have anything awful show up, i'm desperate to know whats wrong with me. I noticed a few posts saying ppl had a normal mri with sensory symptoms so i am hoping for that too.
The next time I see my NS I am going to tell him he got my diagnoses wrong, the MRI was wrong, the Radiologist who read the scan was Wrong. I will tell him I am just Anxious & Depressed. Reverse psychology with the expectation that this approach will get him to see the obvious.
I have an allergy to metals found in cheap jewelry...never got tested, just broken out in rashes before. I see a Rheumatologist for anemia and b12 shots. Just don't know what i should do here. would hate to let the implants fuse to the bone just to find out they were always to blame for making me sick. Any advice/comments?
Exercise makes all of the symptoms worse, as I experience severe aching and muscle twitching after any kind of physical activity. A MRI of the brain and neck revealed increased areas of signal in the brain not consistent with ms. Blood tests suggest autoimmune disfunction (positive ana, antithyroid antibodies, high IgG for parvovirus and EBV and CMV without being conclusive of connective tissue or thyroid disease.
If you wear contact lenses, please bring a pair of eyeglasses with you too. Please leave all jewelry and valuables (even items of sentimental value) at home. It is best to leave credit cards and large amounts of cash at home. Be sure to bring all your health insurance identification cards with you to the transplant center. This is the best way to make sure we have the correct information necessary to bill your insurance company. Do you provide special services for people with disabilities?
I found that when I wear silver jewelry, the metal reacts with my skin and causes me to give off a very musty/mildew odor. It took me quite a while to figure that the religious medal I wore around my neck was the culprit. I'm sure there are numerous other things that would cause this too. Perhaps your body contains a high amount of natural metalic substances? Just a thought.
Makes clubbing and rugby difficult, and I'm fed up with it as it is seriously uncomfortable and embarasing, I'm getting a scan soon after seeing the doctor but he had no idea, I go to the gym am fit and healthy, don't really know wats a hernia is but it could be that but the area of pain is large, help?
Incredible joint pain with the swelling and such but my labs always came back only slightly elevated, and x-rays showed no damage to my joints at all. An MRI done on my knee for a miniscal tear showed no evidence at all as to why I had been having such a hard time walking due to the pain (aside from the tear but the pain had gone on way before that). I truly believe he thought I was faking it for the meds... he diagnosed me with "Palandromic Arthritis" and pretty much blew me off.

Oxycontin.- While awaiting the scan results I was given oxycontin for pain relief, this seemed to do the trick for 2 weeks, 10mg 2x a day, then things hurt again so up the dose went 20mg 2x a day, then 40mg 2x a day, then 80mg 2x a day and up to 120mg 2x a day, recognise the scenereo anyone??..
