Things I Don't Understand #7,614

I have had a headache for the past two weeks along wih ringing ears and other annoyances. My doctor decided that an MRI was indicated to find the source of the problem. Since drugs are not helping I was all for this test.

Well, it wasn't one test... it was four! They took about an hour strapped on a little table with my head immobilized.

Here comes what I don't understand... why, when the underlying complaint is headache, does that machine have to make so many loud noises? Not just one noise but a whole series of thumps, screams, hoots and warnings coupled with a series of vibrations, jiggles and jolts from the table itself?

I think I came out in worse shape than I went into that machine... and my head still hurts, but worse than before.

I just don't understand...

Not laughing at your headache. But laughing hysterically at the whole description of the procedure. Seems crazy, eh?! Hope you feel better soon and that nothing spooky shows up on your MRI.
