Hi. Last Thursday I had a lumbar spine study done in an "open" MRI - it doesn't feel very open to me - I have claustrophobia issues, so I spent the whole time breathing deeply with my eyes shut trying not to move! Thankfully I could listen to music and shut my eyes while it was happening. They put a pillow under my legs to help, but by the end of the 45 minute MRI, my right outer thigh was numb and hot and painful and my lower back is just not OK. Since the MRI, my outer thigh has gotten worse. Has anyone gone through this? How long does it take to hear back from the doctor? I had to give the CD-ROM of the images to my doctor who will give it to radiology for their evaluation. I just want to know what is wrong with me and what I can do to make it better. Pain meds don't do anything. I can't lie down flat or stand up straight for long periods of time without my leg hurting and my lower back seizing up on me. Can anyone share their MRI experience?
