The muscle relaxants worked...whew!...but i had to go back for the MRI and test results. I'd never had an MRI, had no clue what to expect - lemme just say that good thing i am not claustrophobic. The technician put a "hanibal" looking mask around my head, gave me some ear plugs and said, "Just lie flat, try not to move and I'm going to take a few pictures of ur brain. U will hear some loud noises and the test should last about 1/2 hr." She left the room...I was lying on a flat surface (don't remember if it was a bed or not) and there was another larger flat surface hanging above me. She then said into a mike from the other room, "ok, we're going to start now." the flat surface above me started coming down and stopped within an inch of my face and i had to stay like that for the duration of the test - needless to say it was one of the longest 1/2 hours of my life.
This picture is a much newer version of the machine i was in/under/between.
From what I remember, he proceeded to tell me a little about MS and then told me that we would have to do more tests to be absolutely sure because of course I would get the disease for which there is no definitive test. The tests?
