joanlawson Member Posts: 8,681I'm not surprised you fell asleep. You can't move a muscle, and there isn't much more to do really. Anyway, cat-napping is good for you, so I am told. I hope the scan will prove helpful for you.0
kathbee Member Posts: 934Wow, I could never ever fall asleep in one of those MRI contraptions.
I too had my back and neck 'done'. Much too noisy and I was stiff as the proverbial board having to keep still for an hour.
But I applaud you mell, you sure took that in your stride.

Mell Anybody I'm having one on two weeks time.
Mell did you fall asleep because you were so relaxed 8) 8) :shock: I hope you did and it was not that you fainted :shock:
Did it take long?
mellman01 Member Posts: 5,303Hi Trish Joan and all, well I didn'r pass out, I was quite tired but I sort just droped off,I can still remember hearing the thing banging about then it all went fuzzy till I jumped as I came to, then I did it again!.
Seemed only like a few minutes while I was in it, maybe the constant drone of the thing is what did it?.0
patriciamary Member Posts: 117I must admit the same happened to me several years ago. I think I was very uptight about it and when I finally got into the machine I realised it wasnt as bad as I expected. I then dosed off and was constantly fighting with myself to try and stay awake. When I arrived at the hospital I was given directions and although I followed them I couldnt find the MRI scan dept. I then stopped a nurse and asked her because I was getting annoyed at myself and thought I was going to be late. She pointed out the door was right behind me! Well there was a row of doors and each had a name on it Mr Smith, Mr Jones and I read the next one as Mr Iscan (MRI Scan). I had walked up and down several times and didnt realise how stupid I was being. My youngest daughter still to this day says Mr Iscan, when I do something silly.
