It's not radiation. It's magnetic resonance

Yup doctor said I need to have it done because the sooner I have a diagnosis the sooner they can treat me. Both my legs are numb and I'm slowly losing the ability to walk. I guess it's an emergency

They dont usually allow things like that until after you've had the baby i need a scan but doctors refused to do it because of all the radiation. Im very surprised they are allowing it, but then im not a doctor. X
