I had my brain MRI today and since I'm feeling a little wonky tonight, I Googled "brain MRI side effects". Wonky is one of them. I've been having tremors for about an hour and I feel like my thoughts are all jumbled. Weird, man.
Since I laid there in that poster tube for an hour and a half, my brain is magnetic! I better stay out of Target for a couple of days, huh?
I didn't love the MRI. I didn't even like it enough to become friends. It was horrible.
It looked just like dis right heah. My head was in a cage just like this one and me, my head and the cage all went into that little bitty hole, deep into that tunnel until just my knees were sticking out. I had two foam wedges on either side of my head to hold it in place but I still managed to move it during the process and that caused me to need another FOUR sets of images. 'Cause I "lifted my fanny", he said. Well, golleeeee, my fanny gets a little fidgety when it lays still for an hour!! Don't yours?? After about 45 minutes, he pulled me out and injected the dye in my arm and actually fussed at me for moving my head WHEN HE WAS TALKING TO ME. I don't know about you but my mama and daddy raised me right and when somebody's talking to me, I LOOK AT THEM.
So, anyway, after another 45 minutes, it was over and he told me "everything looked fine and he was giving me an A-" because I messed his pictures up with my fanny. Whatever. I sat up on the table and felt a little dizzy but once I was up and walking around, I was okay. Since I've been home, though, I've been nauseated and shaking. Dr. Google says that's normal and will pass.
I should have the results by the end of the week. I'll let y'all know!
