MRI scan and chewing gum
Saturday, July 31, 2010
I just got back from my MRI scan. Hopefully this will point my Dr. in the right direction for solving the vertigo problem. So far he's leaning towards Meniere's disease but hard to rule out tumors and things without having an MRI. I can hardly wait to get my results.
I'm so happy that I didn't freak out during the MRI. I'm minorly claustrophobic and have been experiencing anxiety since the whole vertigo thing started but the test was okay. Phew!
Oh yeah, and does anyone know if having chewing gum in your mouth will affect the MRI results? I can't believe I forgot to spit my gum out before I went in! You would think that the tech would have noticed when she reviewed the film before I left. She said the images looked really clear so I guess it was okay?? I didn't even realize about the gum until the hubby and I were in the parking lot and I blew a bubble. He was just like, "Are you kidding me??!" LOL. Maybe the tech thought, "This poor girl. She has the weirdest shaped abnormality in her mouth." The only reason I was chewing gum in the first place is because it helps with my anxiety.
