Picture this

So, I worked for MRI researchers for eight years, and somehow managed to avoid being a control subject for any of their studies. And, being relatively healthy, I never had any other reason for being shoved in a tube.

Next week, I have to get my knees MRI'd. Good thing I'm not claustrophobic. : D

Say that you are anyway and maybe you'll get free valium.

I had my first MRI recently. The problem wasn't the test, it was finding a vein for the contrast dye. I looked like a pin cushion.

Luckily mine won't involve contrast dye. Woo!

the knee MRI is easy peasy. The hardest part sometimes is your back aches from having to remain so still on that little 'bed'

They said it would last an hour. Bleh.

that's about right. You might not even need contrast for a knee. I never have

Hopefully, it will reveal what's wrong.

Apart from the noises (which aren't that bad) I found it rather restful.

I may have to be in some awkward positions due to it being my knees.
