MRI contrast shots?
Posted by: riverhousebill ()

I just had my 4th MRI, The 3rd and 4th contrast shots made me nauseated
and the 4th gave me a strong chem taste in the mouth.
I was wondering if anyone knows anything about what that contrast shot is made
up of. Im told that you pass the contrast shot through your urine.
Had to take a walk in the mine field again and was wondering about this
ama mri stuff, neg effect ect?
Peace rhb

Gadnolinium, a chelated heavy metal (I just googled it). If you didn't have allergic reactions (and the ones you described are normal -- I've had the same symptoms, as has my daughter), you should be ok. It's nasty stuff, though. I'd load up on seaweed and other heavy metal detox foods.

I had a CT scan today. I have had one before, pre-raw days, but his time I really felt nervous. I was worried about all that liquid chalk I had to drink, the iodine contrast, and the radiation! I was told there were absolutely no side effects from that liquid chalk, but guess what, it plugged me up big time!! :-( The CT tech said the long term affects of the scan itself it not know! Yikes!!! And I was told nothing harmful about the iodine. I'm not sure I buy it.
