I've been having some neurological problems such as numbness and weakness in my legs that began before the MRI. I had an hour-long MRI without contrast media yesterday. Today I've have had somnolence (excessive daytime drowsiness), which feels very intense and unlike my usual fatigue. I'm wondering if this might be due to the MRI itself or if it may be related to my neurological problems which will be investigated in about ten days by a neurologist. If you've had any issues with MRIs, please state whether it was with or without contrast media. Also, if you are a doctor or nurse who has heard of patients having problems after an MRI, please chime in. Thanks.
