WHAT THE APPROPRIATE SOLUTION an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> PATIENT WHO NEED A BRAIN <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> STUDY BUT an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>'T STAY STILL an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> A FEW SECONDS?
I, too, was in the hospital when I had the closed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> and asked an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> sedation which made it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>arable. It wasn't total sedation - just Valium, I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>lieve, but I kept my eyes closed the whole time too and prayed! The next time I had to have one, I opted an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> the open mri which is, at least an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> me (and I panic easily at these things!), not at all threatening. I had to have contrast dye which I wasn't crazy about, but I did take .25 of Xanax an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran>ehand so that it really was a breeze!
So back to my first <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span>. I did not have sedation and initially had a brain s<sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span></sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> done and then had back done as well as repeat brain san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>s. I was relieved when they were over and glad that I had managed to get through it. I then decided to try an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> the oral drug trial that I am now on and this has helped me to get over my fear of mri's.

In addition, there may an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean> side effects related to gadolinium administration.

In my opinion, if an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> have some one to drive an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> are offered sedation. Take it! I was okay with the spinal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span>, I actually fell asleep an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> awhile, I was so tired that day, but not when it comes to with mris of my head. It was too loud and bangy! I ended up with a migraine (which I am prone to) and I was just about nauseous by the time it was done.

Since then I have an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>en pretty healthy until recently. About 8 weeks ago I started getting these severe pains in my right side <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> my rib cage. When I take a deep breath it is like someone is stabbing me. I have no fever and this pain is re-occuring. Some days I am fine, others I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>'t move. I have an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>en to the emergency room twice. The first time they told me my liver enzymes were real high but there was no sign of pancreatits and they sent me home with pain killers.
It lasted about 1 minute. I went to the ER and had an EKG, CT S<sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span></sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> and MRA - all normal. I was diagnosed with a complex migraine. Then I had a rapid heart an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>at and went to the ER - this was about 4 months ago. I had an EKG, CT San style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> and Stress Echo - all normal. Since then, I have had a regular echo and a carotid arterty ultrasound - all normal. I am on 12.5 mg of Toprol an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> an inappropriate sinus tachy. - I was on 37.5 but that was too much.
hepc 1a stage 4 every 30 days my blood markers are doubling doctors worryd at 2500 now there 9000 AFP's ,, is this it, the big one, our just another crack in the wall, no tumors found yet mri on the 22 sep an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>underan> full sedation i found out the hard way im clousta phobic.....
I talked with a man recently that worked with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> units. They needed someone to use when working on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span>, and he volunteered. He received a free san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> of his head. Problem is that they discovered that he had a brain tumor. (an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran>tunate that he volunteered an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> the test). anyway, surgery was necessary. He said that he was frightened out of his mind until they gave him the anesthetic. (Versed?) He said he started laughing. (His words). an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>st of health and happiness.
one lasted 10 minutes, and was focal, afebrile (right side of body only). The other happened after he was <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> sedation an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> a CT s<sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span></sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>>. (He was <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> general anesthesia prior to that an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> an ABR, and had no problems). About 6 hours after the procedure, my son got very lethargic and hot, vomitted, and rhythmically "punched out" with his right arm an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> less than a minute. It all ended as quickly as it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>gan. We called the recovery room, and they were not concerned.
If the EGD is an upper endoscopy, perhaps an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> could ask to have that done <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> conscious sedation? If an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> were diagnosed with Pancreatitis in the ER, doesn't it make sense that an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> had Pancreatitis in the ER? If there is any way to get copies of an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan>r test results, they could an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean> very illuminating. I've learned that an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> learn more through test results and reports than an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> ever imagined. Doctors tend to compress inan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran>mation and sometimes they leave things out entirely.
These helped an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> a short while-although I had complications following the procedure <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> sedation. Over the last 4-6 months I have had almost continuous pain in my right buttock area. I have had a SI injection which did not give any relief. The pain is now constant (and very wearing)when I stand and do any activities. I take anti inflammatories and pain killers but they give mittle respite. I am not able to do my job as I could.
I am in the similar situation but my pediatrician is sending my 9 month old daughter to a neurologist this Wednesday an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> s<sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span></sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>>...they will an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean> peacefully asleep <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> the mild sedation and not know anything. My pediatrician's reasoning is this...the sooner the diagnosis is made, the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>tter the prognosis due to the specialized therapy that will an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean> given.
I saw my gastro last week and he has ordered a CT san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> of pelvis,abdomen,liver and pancreas, 26 June and an upper GI endoscopy <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> sedation 9th July. I was dx by <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> last Nov with 2 strictures in the small intestine, but was asymptomatic then. I suspect my problems are either pancreatitis or the narrowed strictures. I don't feel it is a Crohn's flare, as I have an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>en on injections of methotrexate an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> 7 yrs, and a flare feels quite different.
The twitching is actually worse when I lay on my back or when there is any pressure on my back, so I think <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> would an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean> impossible without sedation. I really just want the spasms/twitching to go away and need some advice ... am I on the right track with my doctors/treatment? Should I see neurology? The spasms are pretty dramatic and sometimes jerky. I don't even want to go out in public since I have no control over this and it's embarassing!!
I really appreciate all the info an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> gave me. I have had a CT s<sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span></sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>>, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> and an ultrasound. I guess these tests are the last resort. I go to the doc on Tuesday an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> my yearly physical so I'm going to talk to him a little more about it too. I'm very glad an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>youan> are an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>tter and once again thanks an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> the info!!
To cut a long story short, my GP sent me to a neurologist who did lots of tests then sent me an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mri</span> s<sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>c<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span></sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> which I had done last week. Now the neurlogist has said I MUST have a lumbar puncture as there are white spots on the san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> ( more than there should an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>). Since Xmas the symptoms came back again but this time they hung around an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> longer and were a bit more pronounced.

I had the test where they an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>putan> a camera down my throat and another one up my bum an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>underan> sedation and nothing came out plus a load of blood tests, ultrasound on my stomach and an abdo mri san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>.
I saw my gastro 2 weeks ago and he has ordered a CT san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> of pelvis,abdomen,liver and pancreas June 26th, and an upper endoscopy <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>under</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span>> sedation 9th July.

It is not usual or normal that an x-ray will reveal any SIJ problems.
