Hi Connie, you have many praying for you even those who have not posted
It may comfort you to know you are listened to at all times during your MRI. If YOU wish it to end and STOP you can tell the tech. in the booth right next to you, she will stop your scan and it will end but you really want them to get a handle on your problem, so they can help you accordingly, But just KNOWING you can get out at anytime may serve to relax you enough to finish the whole session.
I brought a string rosary in with me while listening to Christian Music that may help you pass the time constructively while being a comfort to you. God bless
Bring your favorite music or a comforting CD of the rosary. Say the rosary and offer it up.
Another thought. You might consider consulting with an otolaryngologist or neuro-otolgist who specializes in tinnitus.
It will be alright. It may go much easier than you think.
