Went to a closed MRI unit yesterday for my IAC/Brain scan, with custom made earplugs. And the sounds reaching 115db were overstimulating my ears. Any attenuation from earplugs would not seem sufficient to reduce my sensitivity. I had to stop after the second set of scans, embarrassingly, and in tears. I now have another one scheduled at a different facility where they will allow earplugs plus noise cancellation headphones with classical music in them. Hopefully, this will be better. Not quite sure how anyone with sensitivity to sound with their onset of t can even endure such machines. The staff at the facility I am visiting tomorrow do not even know the max decibel level of their unit, which is an 8 year old Siemens Symphony Unit 1.5T. Nervous. Any suggestions appreciated!
