Mri contrast dye

I Was in remission until I had an MRI scan of the lumbar for back pain with contrast
Now all my symptoms are back especially the constant dizziness
Anyone experience MRI with contrast as a trigger ?
Thanks

No, not personally but I have read it can happen. Presumably a sensitivity to the dye. Alternatively it could just have been brought on by the whole MRI experience itself. I had some enhanced MRI, but no injected dye, and that brought on a full eight day attack (my ‘norm’ at that time) 36 hours later. Helen

Yep. Awful. Took weeks to feel better.
