First, this was not the first MRI I have ever had. Years ago I had an MRI on my brain. This year alone I have had 2 MRI’s on my left foot, including one with contrast die. All were without incidence. Last Tuesday I had another MRI on my brain that was routine. Immediately after the brain MRI, I had a 2nd MRI on my neck. This MRI was anything but normal. Before it started I felt fine and had no need to urinate. I was having MRI’s of my brain and neck due to headaches and a bunch of other symptoms. The latest symptom is a feeling King Kong is squeezing my spinal cord in the neck area. Well, shortly after the MRI began I started to have severe neck and head pain. I also started feeling woozy and light headed. I might add this past summer I began having balance problems which was determined to be a brain issue and not a problem with my ears. Half way through the MRI my bladder filled up to capacity. The table I was laying on during the MRI, I could feel vibrating and made my body itch, just like when you use an electric back massager. By the time the MRI was over with I felt terrible and could barely walk I was so light headed. I spent the rest of the afternoon/evening trying to recover. At home both my legs and arms were weak and achy. To my shock, the MRI was normal. Has anyone ever had such a strange reaction to an MRI before? I am fed up with doctors telling me there is nothing wrong. I have a very long list of other symptoms and know something is seriously wrong but what?
