Remember me? The one who went on the pill binge?

So I had this MRI today for my spine and when they went to inject me with the contrasting dye, my body rejected it. The lady said my vein collapsed. My skin started to get splotchy. This has never happened before and I have had several MRI's as well as bone scans. Do you think this could be as a result of my overdose? Maybe the dye was reacting to the amount of medication is still in my body? What's the deal?

That's really a medical question that none of us is qualified to answer. Have you discussed this with your physician?

Yes. Why don't you ask the doctor or nurse that attended you? They've probably encountered many allergic reactions before and would be more qualified to answer your questions. Did you tell them that you had an "overdose"? If not, then you should do so.
