I am going in Monday for an MRI of my knee, and I am very nervous. I've had several people tell me that MRIs aren't that bad. I really would like to believe that, but I can't shake the nerves. I know my head won't be going in, but my chest will, and that part gets to me. I have a history of panic attacks and asthma, so I like lots of space around my chest so I can breathe. I'm also scared for the results and what impact they will have on my life. I'm trying not to play a game of "what ifs" with myself, but it is really hard. I can't picture how I would teach if I had to sit all of the time or if I was on crutches. Does anyone have an advice?
