I'm waiting for my MRI results . I am currently in the office. I've been having really weird symptom since March of last year. I have numbness and tightness in my abdomen. I am totally freaking out of my skin. Wish me luck....

I am sure you will be just fine. Deep breaths. You got this.

They only gave me a CD of my MRI. My husband said that I'd get my results right after. I'm currently living in München Germany and I am learning how things are done from a medical standpoint. My husband is German and he's not much help. I was told to see my GP. I am so afraid to make an appointment to get the results. I'm wondering if anything was wrong he'd just call. What do you think?

If anything bad was wrong they would be in touch straight away. In fact I think if anything bad had of been wrong they would have told you in the hospital.

Anxiety is a funny thing right? I've been struggling with it for years, health anxiety especially. Yet the one time I had a legit reason to be scared (they saw a mass on my liver which was later benign) I slept like a baby and never worried. Yet every spot, twitch, or swallow has me convinced I'm dying. I will never understand myself.

I’m currently waiting on brain MRI results. Tomorrow will be day two without results, and I am an absolute mess. I called my doctors office 7 times today to ask for an update - and nothing yet. I’m right there with ya. ♥

I had my MRI Wednesday morning and now it's Friday evening...4:15 pm to be exact. I'm currently living in Germany and don't know how things are done medically. I'm too scared to make an appointment to get my results. My husband thinks i'm crazy, but it's my fear that makes me behave this way. I suspect they would just call if something was wrong. Do they check the MRI's that are done on that day and sent out to the Physicians? I have keeping myself busy with my kids and daily chores I'm wishing you all the best with your results. Tschüss!

I know my mri results have been faxed to my doctor, but they haven’t called me. I think the radiologist reads them within a day and sends results to the physician within 24 hours. Make an appt! You’ll feel much better! I wish my doctor would just call me!!

I am of course no doctor but I think that if something was wrong they would have let you know by now (because they did give you the CD already). Don't know about Germany, but I live in the Netherlands and my friend was diagnosed with a brain tumor recently. She had an MRI and was told she would get the results within a few days, but they called her right after she left and asked her to come back to the hospital. So I think they usually react pretty fast.

Wow, really! I'm so sorry about your friend. Whatever my results are I must expect it.

I'm becoming more convinced that you and I are fine. If there was any evidence of something being seriously wrong with us we would have gotten a phone call by now. I will call my doctor's office Monday morning to make an appointment to get my results. Let me know how it goes

I called my doctor's office on Tuesday morning for my MRI results and haven't gotten a call back from my GP. I had my MRI done last Wednesday.

Doctors offices are super busy right now, but trust me when I tell you if there was something serious going on - you would know. If not, they could be sued for malpractice.

Thanks for the words of encouragement. Did you get your results back yet?

I did. I have a lesion on my brain. I met with my neurologist, and it has been there since my last MRI in 2013. Just from an old headache. He put me on new migraine medicine.
fyi, I had to go to the place where I had the MRI done to pick up the results myself. My doctors office refused to call me back, and I was too anxious to wait any longer.

Really! I am glad that you're fine. Now we have to worry about this Coronavirus! I don't have a N 95 mask to wear to the grocery stores...what's a girl to do

I go with a pack of Lysol wipes and pick everything up with a wipe. I stay as far from others as possible. Get in and get out. Spray down everything with Lysol before going into the house. Wipe down countertops with Clorox wipes after I’m done. Shoes stay outside and I change my clothes as soon as I get home.
