MRI Scan Concerns « on: October 04, 2020, 08:14:28 pm »
I’m due to have an MRI scan soon and the thought of it terrifies me to my core. There are whole groups of people damaged by MRI scans alone and of course the contrast dye which I have already had when I was only a young child.
Can an MRI damage my nervous system even further? Doc wants me to have one due to constant migraine type headaches, numbness, vision problems, tonnes of neuro symptoms.
I read that having the contrast dye never leaves your system and having an MRI even decades later can re distribute the dye that has deposited itself in your brain and organs and causes further neurotoxicity. The neurotoxicity I am already currently experiencing is severe and I wonder if I will actually ever heal and make it these days. I don’t want a scan to make me even worse however I feel like I need to know if I have a tumour/lesions/atrophy/white matter or something else going on as I only get worse over time.
