My doctor has ordered an MRI to rule out trigeminal neuralgia. I’m already dealing with major dental phobia, pain, anxiety...now I’m terrified of getting an MRI. I’m not so worried about the results of the test. It’s getting the test that is scaring me. I’m terrified that my crowns or posts or fillings will be pulled out and cause a significant danger to me during the procedure. I’ve been to so many dentists over the years and have extensive metal fillings, crowns, posts, that I have no idea what is all in my teeth. To say I’m scared is to put it lightly. I’m nauseous, crying and can’t focus on anything. I haven’t even scheduled it yet because I’m so scared. Help!?
