Why am I so tired after an MRI?

What's an MRI?

An MRI is a special machine that doctors use to look inside your body without any cuts!

Noises and Sounds

During an MRI, you hear lots of loud noises. It's like being in a noisy factory!

Staying Still

You must lie super still during the MRI. Imagine playing a game where you can't move at all!

It Feels Long

Sometimes, an MRI can take a long time, even an hour. That's like sitting through a whole movie!

Staying still for so long uses up your body's energy, just like when you concentrate really hard in class.

Using Energy to Stay Still

MRI rooms are often cool, which can make your body work harder to stay warm.

Loud Noises

The loud noises can make your body tense without you even noticing.

After the MRI

When it's all done, your body might feel tired from all the stillness and noise.

After the MRI, it's a good idea to rest and relax. Maybe read a book or take a nap!
