I swear if it isn't one thing then its another. Over the past two weeks I have been experiencing pain in my hip accompanied with numbness and tingling in both my left and right legs. It's difficult to walk, stand and sit. Finally, I went to see the doctor yesterday and now I have to go get an MRI because it might be a pinched nerve. Ugh! The last time I had an MRI at least 11yrs ago I barely fit into the machine. Well I'm a lot heavier than I was 10 yrs ago and I am terrified. I read some where that an Open MRI is able to accomodate morbidly obese paitents but then it's the issue of my insurance covering it. Ugh!
I'm sure I'm not the only one who has been faced with this issue. Has anyone of my weight range needed an MRI?
