Oh no. I'm glad you're okay, OP. Coming from a person with severe claustrophobia, i know how much that sucks. I really hope they pulled you out and made sure we're okay. As a side note, you were being scanned for a reason so I hope everything is all right. Please do a follow up and let us know how everything is. (:

Do you think he posted this from inside the MRI scanner?

I had to have an MRI a couple of months back. More terrifying than the noise or small space was the presence of red nail varnish scratches from the person who freaked out before me.

That's the way we torture Russian communists who pray to a pic of Putin riding a bear, and who generally don't carry vodka with them. God bless America!

Seems a little strange to me. I would have thought the noise would be more annoying than the close space.

How is that strange? OP is talking about his/her fear not what they're annoyed by. Fear is a more heightened experience and the fear of small space is very common.

Being afraid and being annoyed are two hugely different things. Pretty sure people with these fears dont like it when people say shit like this. They already get laughed at. Have some compassion.

#7 That has to be one of the nicest, most supportive FML replies I've seen in a long time. Well done. My reply is that I'm a nurse. I've seen this sort of thing many times before. Usually we medicate them, but if they are really bad we do it under anesthesia. Get it done. The doctor is looking for something. I hope everything works out.

I find this hilariously ironic because MRI scanners help you live in the long run and OP is having a sense of dread in it.

I'm sorry I worded that wrong. I found the irony funny, not the situation itself. I hope OP can eventually overcome his/her fear of cramped spaces.

I'm no medical expert, but MR scanners do nothing but take pictures. Next time a photograph sews you up and saves your life, relate that story and I'll think about how MR scanners help people stay alive.
