Went for a brain scan today; tolerated closed-in feeling, but the pain was unbearable! I've never been able to lie on my back; my back, shoulders, arms, felt like they were being broken and the skin burned all over my back, from the fibro. I tolerated the first round and then asked to come out: he had told me he would stop the procedure whenver I felt I needed to. I thought I would move around a bit and go the next round when he said "we're not going to do this today. I can't keep pulling you out or I would run overtime. Get some pain medication from your Doc and then make a new appointment" Has anyone else had this problem? Pain pills make me nauseous, and my doc doesn't believe in it anyway. Any suggestions for how to get through this procedure; it took months to get this apppointment.
