Hello everyone. I just got an MRI (WITHOUT contrast) of my right hip yesterday and wasn’t feeling well afterwards. Just assumed it was fatigue from getting myself there, having to remain so still during the procedure and then getting myself home through traffic. My body pain slowly increased, and when I went to bed, I told my husband that I was wondering if the MRI can cause a mast cell response, bcs that is exactly what it felt like. Hmm… Then, when I woke up around 2:00am WAY too hot, I thought, “This feels like a fever”, but was too zonked to get up. Well, this morning I took my temp and it registers at 99*F, which is a very low grade fever for me, as I tend to run at or below 98*F in the am. (Note: This is my 2nd MRI (without contrast) in 2 months (no reaction the first time), and had just removed the ZIO heart monitor the same morning (I think I was reacting to the adhesive)… so, as is often the case, this was probably a “perfect storm-type” scenario). Has anyone experienced low-grade #fever after #MRI ? Or a #mastcell response? https://www.hindawi.com/journals/cmrb/2019/9618680/ https://www.fda.gov/radiation-emitting-products/mri-magnetic-resonance-imaging/benefits-and-risks UPDATE: Thank you for the info @kchiavettak re: MCAS and MRI (with AND without contrast).
