I may just ask for something to calm my nerves next scan. I didn’t even think about it as an option. This was my first MRI ever. I have heard about how some patients hate them and now I know why. Thank you!

@azkidney57– You can get medicine from your doctor before hand unless it interferes with your treatments or other meds. that you might be taking. Scanxiety seems to be a very normal reaction for a lot of people prior to scans. You have to ask your doctor before hand about taking tranquilizers. You can't ask for one when you get to the testing area.
