Head MRI scan - really scared, what should I expect during the scan?

Loud. The MRI makes a noise like a jack hammer. It doesn't hurt at all, you will feel nothing. You should just close your eyes, think pleasant thoughts, and try to hold as still as possible so that the images are as good as they can be. There's no need to fear at all. I've had an MRI and it's really easy. Read more...

Does sinus disease go away? A recent head MRI revealed sinusitus but I am not symptomatic in any way so could it have been there for a while and me not know it? Have an ENT appt next week. Just curious. I have a history of seasonal allergies

SinusAin'tYourFriend. Yes, allergies alone can cause a "boggy" sinus lining and maybe look like sinusitis on an MRI,. But if you don't have symptoms (like pain,pressure, fever, nasal discharge) then you don't have active sinusitis! Probably best to get the ENT's exam and opinion. The sinuses are funny structures. They don't drain well and once an infection sets in it's hard to get rid of. Same for allergic "bogginess." Read more...

A neurologist may be the next best step in your evaluation. The ENT you are seeing who had more info than us may also be able to suggest the next steps in your work up. Read more...
