Slightly off topic, but can contrast agent give you a ripping headache (had my MRIs early evening yesterday)? The evening of, and next day? My head feels like it will explode and it's working it's way from the back of my head/base of skull around to the top and front by my eyes.
My first MRI with contrast gave me a killer head ache. Since then I always buy a gallon of water and drink the whole thing asap after an MRI to flush the contrast. I still get a head ache but not as bad. Any time they use contrast in a medical test I flush that stuff out as soon as possible.
I had an MRI on Tuesday with contrast and got a horrible headache Tuesday night, Wednesday and woke up today and it was gone. I drank tons of water cause I read this thread and took 2 Excedrine Migraines. Thank goodness it went away!
