I'm with you one this one Chuck. Did one a few years ago no problem. Tried to do it this past Monday and couldn't do it. Don't know what changed. They rescheduled me for the open one and gave me a script for Valium. Hope it works. The bone spur in my shoulder is killing me.

same here, I about broke the machine pulling myself out of it. The tech was not impressed with me at all. Open MRI I had no problems with. The closed I couldnt even lay flat, they are not for the larger framed man that is for sure

We see folks find out how claustrophobic they are when they put on an scba and get into zero visibility smoke conditions. I feel for them even though I can't relate, just seeing their eyes the size of golf balls and shallow rapid breathing shows that it is a very real condition.

LMF I never had a problem till I saw a damn movie of a person in a small box buried alive. Then I went into a crawl space about 24x26X30' to do some plumbing and then it hit me.

I did all sorts of ship wreck diving back when visibility in the great lakes was next to zero. We would enter old boilers and descend from a boat down into total darkness and I was fine. I even slept in the Lazarette of a WW2 landing craft for a few days with no problem. Maybe I was a breach baby and now its all coming back to me..................NEVER MIND

Sometimes it's mind over matter if you can convince yourself of it. I can run all around on 2 x 4s on the ground, but 12 feet up I can get unbalanced on a flat roof. I still work on high places but don't like it and am very cautious.
