    Just did MRI this morning, my back was too warm (I have stainless steel plate and screws on spinal cords), I feel like vomit and giddy, couldn't continued, and stopped scanning. My back still feel uncomfortable now.

    I had a couple MRIs before the wires of my C4 through C6 fusion were removed in 1987. They caused distortion in the pictures, but no other problem.

    Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.

    As others have mentioned, titanium does not affect the magnetic field of the MRI so it's not a problem.

    It's worth noting that MRIs may temporarily disable baclofen pumps. The pump should resume normal function afterwards. But your doctor who manages the pump should verify it is working normally.
