I just had a Ct scan for the first time. Im not on any meds and not allergic to anything. Felt the heat go Down my back like they said i would. Then felt like throwing up. But didn't. They said not to move during scan but I felt super itchy. When finished I started breaking out in hives and itchy all over. A little harder to breath too. They laid me back down and told me I was having an allergic reaction. Then they pumped 2 bags of benadryl through my arm. Got super buzzed real fast. Started laughing while they were asking me how was feeling. Then I got cold. I think I was cold but not sure, because my whole body was shivering. They gave heated blankets which felt good. About an hour later the shaking and itching went away. But of course I was still super buzzed and starving from fasting. That was Pritty much it. One question is that about a week later I'm starting to get a little itchy again. Not as bad as the day of the scan. But bad enough to notice since I'm not usually itchy. So whats your opinion. Will it eventually go away? I'm thinking that there is still some of that dye in my system, and thats why im still itchy.View Thread
