I am scheduled to have 3 MRIs on Wed. Two of my back and one of my brain. I am very claustrophobic. The doctor gave me Ativan but the last time I had an MRI and I took Ativan it did not seem to do anything. Maybe I will take 2 or 3. I asked them if they couldn't just knock my out. They said that they couldn't do that. I may be a screaming idiot by the time they are done. All 3 together are supposed to take 2 hours. Hopefully they will figure out what they can do to fix my back. I have 2 herniated discs that I know of. One in the cervical spine and one in the lumbar spine. Neuro doc gave me Tramadol for the pain. I took a whole pill and felt like a slug. No pain but I didn't like having jello for legs. I took a quarter of a pill and that didn't do anything. I took a half a pill and no pain but I was soooooo depressed all I wanted to do was cry. So I put that bottle away. I would rather deal with the pain.
Send prayers please or at least some better drugs.
I told them that there was really no need for the brain MRI as I didn't have one. My onc didn't see the humor there. She just looked at me like she didn't get it.
