2 hours ago · Waiting for scan results. Is this part of scanxiety? in Cancer: Managing Symptoms

@eileen61
So what are youl nervous about? Are you claustrophobic? If so you can ask to have an open MRI. You could ask to be put to sleep. They have short acting sleep medications available or you might ask your doctor for a tranquilizer. There are certain medical health conditions where an MRI may not be recommend, Epilepsy, which is my nemesis, being one but I’ve had at least 4 with no problems. I’d rather have. You could ask if a CT would be appropriate in your condition although CT’s use radiation. There are about 40 million MRI’s done in every year.

@brownikl1
That’s probably why your going through the withdrawals. Effexor needs to be stopped slowly, VERY SLOWLY!

Some people I know who regularly have Focal Impaired seizures said I wouldn’t have walked off the edge but I wouldn’t want to put it to the test. I was probably acting weird, yeah yeah I know, I meant more so than usual. “Wondering” is common during Focals.
