I had a Brain MRI without contrast and I have felt extremely strange ever since. I have been suffering with Vertigo which is why the MRI was done to begin with. During the MRI I started feeling very weird. I felt very dizzy and my chest and head felt great pressure and I even felt dumb in my right hand and I feel nausea at times too.. I had this done on a Friday and it is now the following Monday and I am still feeling very weird. I am not normal feeling at all. I was told there are no side effects from an MRI but I am here to tell you that I felt completely normal until about half way into the test I have felt weird and still do. What can this be??? I am not able to do much at all but lie around I seem to be less dizzy and less nausious. My head just feels like it has a lot of pressure and or like it is a fish bowl I just do not feel right at all. Please give me an answer. I sure hope this is not anything to least long term or life threatening. I just want to feel normal again or at least the way I did before the MRI. I know there are side efeects of an MRI or I would not feel this way. Thank you. dizzyhead13
Hello. I read your post and can tell you that I too, are feeling side effects after having the MRI of my brain. It has been like 3 weeks since I had it done, but I am having strange headaches that didn't start until after the MRI, in fact, today I posted about it in the MS community...this was my second post about it.
For about 3 days after I felt kind of "off balance" a little dizzy, but had a horrible headache, different than the migraines and in a different spot...my brain! These headaches are waking me up in the middle of the night/ and are quite severe. I don't like it, it scares the heck out of me! I hope you'll keep in touch to let me know how you are doing.
