      I have an MRI next week... Should I wear ear plugs or they will protect my ears there? Does it make a difference? Will my T get worse if I dont? I never had an MRI before help!

      Rina I wore earplugs when I got mine and they did offer me headphones to cancel out the noise, it had no effect on my T :)

      I had an MRA and I'm glad I wore ear plugs (foam). They offered a headset to play music but I'm glad I wore the plugs because it is loud and takes about 30'. No effect on my T.

      You usually get earmuffs, but you can wear those on top of your earplugs if you feel safer :)

      How long does the MRI last? I'm claustrophobic and I must have a MRI and mra. Doctor prescribed volium for me to take so I'm relaxed. Is this medication good ? Will it really help my fear of closed in places? I can picture crawling out of this machine every time the technician walks away to start the test
