I have an MRI of my Brain and AIC as well as an MRI of my Lumbar Spine (Lower spine) scheduled for tomorrow. I'm not looking forward to this for two reasons. One, I am claustrophobic. two, I hear the dye is heavy metals and many people have had reactions to the contrast injection either immediately or a short while after. Some have even reported health problems later on and possibly related to the contrast. I found a blog (http://blog.remakehealth.com/blog_Healthcare_Consumers-0/bid/6788/W... ) that discusses some of the risks with many people sharing their personal experience in the comments.
Does anyone have advice or suggestions on what to do before or after an MRI? Does anyone have experience to share on the contrast?
The reasons for the MRI's are because of persistent head and neck pain and lower back pain causing really bad leg pains and tingling in my legs and feet. I also have very loud ringing in my ears (I'm hearing impaired) but louder than usual.
