I had an MRI on my wrist as my doctor thought that I had torn something in my left wrist. I was in the MRI for an hour. I was in for about 15 minutes when my hand started to sweat and got very hot. I started to get claustrophobic and dropped the call button I was just about to press it when the operator told me that there was one more cycle to go. All the staff I talked to were very friendly and answered all my questions.

I had an MRI early morning today and it took about more than an hour; it include contrast. At first l felt nervous or maybe tense, my hands and feet were cold but l managed it by telling myself it's nothing and focused my mind on some other things or made my mind busy. Luckily it got over and I got up thankful l don't get side effects.
