Any suggestions on dealing with the claustrophia during an MRI?

I have tried the open sided machine. I may have tolerated being in it had the tech not been so pushy and uncompassionate. I am looking for thoughts or pictures or something to "take" with me to my test next Monday.

Do I continue to get an MRI?

I haven't had an MRI since 2011 and still debate what to do. They didn't find any new lesions and I haven't had any more flare ups. I have the small every so often type symptoms but never a flare up.
My attitude is what can they tell me that I don't already know. Will finding more lesions really do anything for me? Will they have to find another preventive measure? Any thoughts?
