For context, I'm not in the best place I could be emotionally, hormonally, or external-circumstance-wise, so this is likely a combination of factors, not just the MRI I had today. I'm trying to work out whether I need to book future scans during the summer break, if they're meant to fall annually, or risk the wrath of payroll by booking the day after each scan off.
There's the fact that I have bits of metal in my brain, and I spent about half an hour today with my head in a NOISY tunnel of magnets, and there's the fact that I'm hypersensitive to pretty much everything since the haemorrhage. I feel properly wonky, but, because of all the 'other' stuff, I can't settle, and sleep it off, I've set up tomorrow's dinner, and laid out tomorrow's breakfast, I've re-organised the airing cupboard... this is 'me', not the brain damage.
Does anyone else feel 'off' after MRI/MRA, I know the last one that I wasn't already in hospital for knocked me sick, but it was during a school break, so I didn't have to factor in the slurring, and the vertigo, and the generally appearing drunk-at-work.
I did do the deep breathing, and I was as calm as I could be in the scanner, but, despite the earplugs and ear-defenders, the noise was nauseating. I did close my eyes, but that didn't cut the flash-glare from the fluorescent light in the room. I was as relaxed as I could be, with my head restrained (I hate that, but that's me, not the BI.)
That's my question, does anyone else feel rough the day after a scan?
