I was given an MRI in 1984 and injected with Metrizamide. One hour after the procedure was over and I was back in my hospital room I sufferd a grand mal seizure and was treated under Code Blue procedures for over a half hour. It was so serious a seizure that a priest had been summoned to administer last rites and upon my awaking and seeing him I went into shock. I was kept in the hospital two days and when released I was told that my condition was rare but that it had happened to others. I was later experiencing stabbing pains in the area of the injection site and was told that it was normal. That condition remained for 20 years.Read More Read Less
