I had a head MRI last Friday. If it was serious, would I have heard by now? It was for tinnitus and weird symptoms in head (tingling, cracking, feeling 'full').

Should be with a week I would have thought, but you might have to phone hospital or consultant to get results. These days, scans are digital so can be 'emailed' to consultant, even if he is miles away. (at least, mine were).

So chase it up, I would advise.
