I had an MRI of my left shoulder. Now I am suffering from numbness, dizziness, nausea, eyesight issues, and exhaustion. Earlier I had issues only in my left shoulder, now my entire body is in a state of soreness.

I had an MRI because I get migraines. I was fine before and during, but started getting a migraine right after I got out.

I have had a few MRIs mainly on my lower back. I recently had one on my shoulder/head and experienced nausea, dizziness, and headaches for days after the MRI.

MRI gave me headache, nausea vomiting, and dizziness. I couldn’t open my eyes without feeling dizzy.
