Dr. Lim sent me for a breast MRI. I’ve had lots of MRI’s and don’t have claustrophobic issues with the exam. However, I had an issue this time. I felt normal, with the exception of a severe lack of sleep, and moved through the steps with the tech. She had already inserted the IV for contrast. Again, I had to lay on my stomach with my breasts positioned through holes beneath me. My arms were above my head and my back was slightly arched. In positioning the bed into the machine, I felt the room spin and my vision hollow out. I started shaking and turned white. I felt myself being taken off the bed and smelling salts beneath my nose. I was quickly taken next door to the urgent care where people seemed to scramble faster than my brain could keep up. My blood pressure had dropped and I couldn’t seem to find my “footing” for a bit. They ran a lot of tests and, in the end, decided it was important, considering my illnesses, to transport me to Methodist Hospital for 24-hour observation. More scans and blood work. In the end, we don’t know what happened.
