Thanks for all the replies! I hope I don't get a reaction. I also hope that contrast stuff doesn't have negative long term affects on the body (cancer!).
Here's where the getting of unneeded med testing can create future problems. You alluded to your Doc giving you this 2nd MRI because you pressed for it so, in my humble opinion, this would be a medically unnecessary test. And, now even before the testing you are perceiving potential future health concerns from the contrast dye. This is how HA operates. This is how we get cemented into fear cycles.
Do you guys think that since I had an mri without contrast in November that I should be fine and no tumor should show up?
99% certain you will be fine and no tumor will show up. Nothing is 100% really....except that HA peeps won't really find lasting peace until they move away from medical intervention, at some point, after being told we are overall OK - healthy:)
Emily, I'm on your side - promise. I don't begrudge anyone for having med tests or running to the Doc when they are struggling with serious HA. I've been there. It's what happens, often. But, there is a viable healing path out there for almost all of us. That healing path for mental health challenges (anxiety) will not develop that well until we do move away from most medical intervention.
I wish you well. And, I'm sure your MRI will be just fine:)
Peace and Feel Well:)
