Yesterday I had a complete spinal MRI. I have never had my body react this way before and am wondering if anyone else has had this happen to them.I had been lying in the machine for about 10 minutes or so, when I started having twitches in my fingers. It was like they were jumping and I had no control over them. As the time went on and the scan progressed, I started having the muscles on the top of my legs in my thighs start kinda jumping. It wasn't like the were flopping all over or anything. It felt almost like when you get eye tics. Anyway, it was the weirdest sensation I ever had. By the time the scan was done(about an hour and a half) I was in sooooo much pain I couldn't hardly get off the table. The pain then continued thru the night and a bit of burning still lingers on this morning. I took all of the pain meds I am allowed at one time before I went in cuz I remember from experience how bad I hurt from lying there so long. I wonder if all the spasms were from my DDD and nerves being compressed even more, or what? Any of you have similar experiences? The tech said it was probably from lying so long in the machine. Won't know anything else for approximately a week. Thanks for any input.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
