Chris and Jami, thank you for these replies! They are immensely helpful.
Chris, I have never had an MRI before, so these tips are great. I will be sure to dress comfortably/warmly. Jami, I love the idea of visualizing the yoga moves. I'm going to need something to think about in there, and can't think of a single thing more relaxing than that. Ommmmmmm.
I get pins and needles right at the tip of my tongue, and on the right side. Technically not numb, because if I poke around in there I can still feel things brushing or scraping against the tongue, but it's a very odd sensation. The pins and needles in my cheek and under my eye come and go.
The past few days the headaches have been intense, and all behind my right eye/under the brow bone. That eye has gotten droopier, too. I look a little lopsided.
I'll know soon enough, and I keep trying to breathe through it all and remind myself these symptoms could be caused by any number of things. Great tip on requesting the results and being equipped with a CD drive, Jami! Luckily I have an external one for my computer for work! I'll make sure to bring it home with me.
Question for all: how long did it take to get results after your MRI? Did the radiologist give you results (or in any other way let on that something was afoot), or did you get a call from your doctor? I know each journey is individual, but I really appreciate sharing these details! Thanks to each and every one of you.
