Well I mentioned briefly in another thread that I may have a torn rotator cuff in my shoulder. So today I had a MRI scheduled, I really was not feeling all that well, but no big deal, I have done it many times for my knee and foot and have even had a cat scan. So I went in with no care in the world, got prepped and ready to go in the tube, but considering I am about 6' 3" and 280 with broad shoulders, they had a hard time stuffing me in the thing, it was a older type enclosed MRI machine and it was very small. So finally they just crammed me in the thing and away we went, I mean my nose was literally just about touching the top on the barrel. So with that, I think that I made it about 6 minutes before I finally started to flip out. I started to press the panic button and in they came running and ejected me. I don't know what happened, but my mind went nuts and my heart started to race and I just had to run out of there, I felt like such a wuss, but I had no control, I literally lost my mind. So tonight I did some research and found out that there are now standing MRI's, I am going to try and find a place with one of these machines, because my arm is killing me and I have too get this test done. I was just sitting here laughing about my experience today and thought I would share..So with that, I am curious has anyone else ever have a problem doing a enclosed MRI??
