Hi everyone,

I've been feeling dizzy for a while now and my ENT recommended that I get an MRI to rule out things that we might have overlooked. I've been prescribed to do MRI with and without contrast agent, so I guess that doubles the duration?

Having done some research, I learned that the noise level of MRI scan can be really loud to the extent that it can be hazardous to hearing, even if hearing protection is provided.

As an individual who is more sensitive/low tolerance of loud noise than others, I'm quite nervous about this. If you have undergone MRI for vestibular organs, could you please share your experience with me?

Thanks!

I have hearing sensitivity from what I think is the vaccine it just came on and never went away since 3 months now..anyway I have an mri and what I did was wore those bright orange ear plugs they’re a foam and they really keep out the noise for me plus you can ask for a ear muffs they provide them at most mri departments..hope that helps…how are you know..also I started on Flonase last night and was surprised it helped with my hearing sensitivity my tolerance improved I’m gonna keep at it for the rest of this week see how it goes
