MRI Contrast Problems May Be The Result of Gadolinium Toxicity

Austin Kirk

Posted May 21, 2018


Following an MRI with contrast, if you or a loved one have suffered from persistent pain, headaches, skin changes, brain fog or other problems, it may be the result of toxic gadolinium building up in your brain or body.

Gadolinium is used to help enhance images during an MRI or MRA exam. While patients are told that the contrast dye is safe and leaves the body within a few days if you have normal kidney function, mounting evidence suggests that is not the case and gadolinium may be retained, posing serious health risks.

The lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are reviewing potential MRI gadolinium toxicity lawsuits for individuals who have experienced any of the following symptoms within a few weeks after an exam where a contrast dye was injected:

  • Persistent Headaches
  • Bone and Joint Pain
  • Reduced Cognitive Function
  • Tendon and Ligament Pain
  • Thickening Of Soft Tissues
  • Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis


Gadolinium Retention from MRI Contrast Dye

MRI Contrast ProblemsAbout ten years ago, our law firm represented individuals nationwide who were diagnosed nephrogenic systemic fibrosis from MRI contrast agents.

This debilitating and life-threatening condition was seen among individuals with impaired kidney function, where the contrast dye was not being excreted from the body, resulting in gadolinium toxicity.

Although the manufacturers have maintained that gadolinium MRI contrast dye is safe for individuals with normal kidney function, recent evidence indicates that gadolinium may be retained in the body and brain.

  • March 2015 – A study published in the medical journal Radiology found evidence of gadolinium deposits in the brain of those who had an MRI with contrast, while those who had not received the injections did not have the residue.
  • June 2015 – The findings of research conducted on the rats was published in the journal Investigative Radiology, indicating that animals injected with “linear” gadolinium contrast agents had high levels of gadolinium deposits deep in the brain, with significant and persistent abnormalities, as well as signs of hyperintensity even after injections were stopped.
  • July 2015 – FDA announces that it is evaluating the risk of gadolinium brain deposits from repeated MRI contrast exams, following recent publications in medical literature.
  • July 2016 – American College of Radiology updates guidelines for when to use gadolinium MRI dye, including factors that should now be considered based on the risk of deposits in the brain or other sensitive organs.
  • September 2017 – The FDA Medical Imagine Drugs Advisory Committee voted 13-1 to recommend new MRI contrast dye warnings about the risk of gadolinium buildup in the brain.
  • December 2017 – New gadolinium warnings were announced by the FDA about the risk of gadolinium retention, and new recommendations for healthcare professionals and patients.

Gadolinium Toxicity Lawyers

As a result of the failure to warn about the risks associated with gadolinium deposits building up in the brain and body, the lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are reviewing potential injury cases for individuals nationwide.

Financial compensation may be available for individuals who have suffered side effects from gadolinium toxicity. The progressive disease may have been avoided if patients and doctors had been informed about the potential risk before agreeing to undergo an MRI with contrast.

All claims are handled by our lawyers on a contingency fee basis, meaning there is no fee unless a recovery is obtained. To review a potential claim, request a free consultation and claim evaluation.

    I have had this procedure done twice I think the first time it was in 2013 in Charleston but they called it nuclear medicine and I also had it done again in 2016 or 17 at McLeod’s in Florence South Carolina and I do have like short term memory loss I do have joint pain in my feet and in my hands and also my knees and my hip and my back and I do have headaches all the time I guess we’re talking about the same procedure is where they inject you with dye and you have to sit for a little while and then they put you on the table to do a MRI and they stated taking pictures of your organs and stuff for like every few minutes for maybe 30 minutes or an hour ago how long it takes to do this but yes I am interested in speaking with an attorney about this

    Having suffered cellulitis in my right leg, a condition that had developed for no known reason, landed me in the hospital around August 2016.
    An MRI with Gadolinium as a contrast dye was scheduled. I was informed that the dye was needed to verify vasculature in my leg.
    Keeping a story to a manageable length, I almost passed away due to anaphylaxis and experienced intense and extremely painful burning within my body, when the dye was injected.
    Subsequent to this event, within a month, I found that I was having difficulty walking due to intense discomfort, emanating from my right hip and right leg. Additionally, my lower back, on a regular basis does not feel comfortable, whereby it feels tight.
    One other aspect, was that I had become confused and disoriented, leading me to want to get a divorce. Somehow an aspect of sanity prevailed and my wife and I go to counseling once a month, since January/February 2018.
    I work 3 EMT jobs, putting in about 100+ hours a week and the issues that prevail with my right hip and right leg, have brought me to the point of needing to find other work. This is due to the fact that my condition may be detrimental and harmful to my patients and partners.

    I have had multiple MRI’s with contrast. I have since developed excruciating pain especially in my lower legs, pain/swelling in my joints, and brain fog. Never been tested for Gadolinium toxicity nor did I hear anything about it until your message on Facebook. Have had other multiple tests to determine cause of my symptoms with inconclusive results. Gadolinium toxicity may just be my problem.

    Since I had contrast dye mri, about 30 or so days later I started having severe cramping in my feet and calves, hands and forearms, usally twice a week or so. I have to be careful in stretching or positioning of my feet or they will cramp. Gripping with my hands causes them to cramp now. Never had this before. Inside my ankles feel swollen or numb kind of..thick, tingly etc. its strange. The only reason I related it to this dye is a reaction I had when they did it, I actually reached out and said I felt bad, funny etc. I thought they gave me too much. And then later this cramping began.

    I have had 3-4 MRI’s with contrast at the direction of my Doctor. I was never informed about the risks associated with the injection of the dye. Subsequent to each test I was fine but, soon thereafter I suffered a lapse of memory and “brain fog”. Obviously unsure if the contract dye was responsible, I just continued on ward after the Doctor showed the results of the testing. The dye, although it left a funny taste in my mouth, seemed to work and the Doctor’s displayed the results of the test’s which, showed my MS Lesions. I am unsure if they could study that any other way ? However, I am willing to learn the truth>

    I have had the cntrast die many times over the past 20 years. never associated any of my problems with it. aprox 1 month ago i received it to diagnose a kidney problem that actually still hasnt been diagnosed, also had this same test done several times back in 2014 aprox 3 or 4 in a matter of a couple days. Since than I have been getting migrains almost every day, numbness and tingling in my hands and feet daily, almost constant, terrible memory loss to the point I went to doctor cause it was beginning to scare me, eye sight has decreased and also see things flashes of light, shadows, a lot of bluriness, ect. ect. severe wrist pain out of the blue to the point i cant use my hands, contantly dropping things cause I either cant feel my hands or the pain is so bad I cant hold my grip. I am very interested in knowing if my symptons are associated with this contrast if for no other reason than to just ease my mind.

    First I’d like to say to all those who have suffered from this HORRIBLE toxin that has been continuously injected into our bodies to help and try to come up with some sort of a solution, I am TRULY sympathetic and can feel your pain in every way, shape and form! I feel like like my kidneys are being twisted and stabbed on a daily basis, which NEVER happened before 2015. I thought I had had stones or a kidney infection. However, 3-4 Doctors have ruled that out as being the problem to my pain. Both of my legs, especially my feet and even MORESO, my knees. I can’t kneel AT ALL without feeling like I’m kneeling on glass. I would accept back pain over these symptoms ANY given day. My children get upset with me because I can hardly remember things that I say, even if it’s less than 2 mins prior. I’m too young for ALL of these problems and issues to start now. I have my whole life ahead of me and to think that this could have been avoided, if someone would have done more research on this “Contrast!”, this, “TOXIC DYE!” I’m just livid and I’m tired of going from doctor to doctor to try and figure out what the heck is wrong with me. At least I’m not alone, I’m sorry to all of you sufferers, but no one EVER wants suffer in excruciating pain and have no answers going on almost 4 years now. I’m not myself mentally or physically and I am SOOOO ready for a change.

    I had an MRI back in October 2017 to scan activity and function of my heart. Since then within a month or so I began having to deal with this shooting surge of pain in my left thigh. The surface skin is continually numb to the touch and the skin is hard as a rock. At any moment on a random basis I encounter a strong series of shooting pain as if steel tipped darts were being thrown into my leg. clear up the left side of my back with a slight rash is ever present.. Itching is ever present. I have painful bone d joint pain in that area. I feel I have lost a lot of my physical strenghth I hope there is some ssolutiion to this problem. If anydoctoer indicates he wants an MRI I will have to say “NO WAY”.

    I knew I was experiencing different health issues that I could only attribute to worsening Arthritis. But as I listened to the reports it now makes more sense. Intense burning, itching, and blotchy and numb feelings in left arm and hand. Swelling in extremities. Headaches most every day. Vision has gotten so much worse. I’m very concerned about long term effects of this due. I wish I could have had a chance to decide for myself if I wanted to take this risk. But I was not informed about it before I received it.

    I too have had several MRI’s with contrast, the most recent being a few weeks ago and two more within 1.5 yrs., with one being my heart. Couldn’t breathe, anxiety took over and it burned like hell.
    In constant pain (10+) daily from my back, legs, hands and right hip. My memory is has been getting worse to where family and friends have noticed. Fibromyalgia, severe arthritis, headaches and I don’t get headaches often until recently. My right kidney has been giving me issues and when my doctor called she said some level to do with my kidneys was high. I also have a severe Vitamin D deficiency #13 is my number and has been for over 15 years with no luck getting numbers up with 100,000 units a week. Depression, fatigue and stress are also more noticeable. The pain and memory issues are enough to keep me in unless I have a doctor’s appointment.
    If it wasn’t for your post on Facebook, I would of never known about Gadolinium toxicity, so thank you! Question,
    what does the test consist of with determining Gadolinium toxicity?

    I have had massive constant headaches since May 16 2016, joint pain that is at times almost unbearable. During one pain injection appointment the doctor injected, according to his own words, he was injecting a dye for an MRI and no MRI was done or ordered! I have had all of the above symptoms ever since. All of my days are painful and my activities are now very limited.

    I have had to many MRIs with contrast to count. In 2008 I had back surgery in which l4-l5 were fused and held with plates and screws, in 2010 a manigioma tumor was found in my brain, was monitored for 4 years with MRI with contrast , in 2014 had to have tumor removed and have been monitored every year with MRI w contrast to check for return of tumor . I have almost every symptom except the headaches . The worst is the joint pain, have been to my doctor to,many times to,count to,try and figure out why I hurt so,bad and he has never been able to tell me exactly what is wrong so we treat the symptoms . As I get older it is starting to affect my mobility , I am on 49 years old, I should not be in as much pain as I am. The pain and loss of mobility has caused depression which I fight daily along with the pain.

  • DeJanetta says:

    I am 38 years old, I have been getting MRI’s since I was about 9 yrs old, 1989. Because of the itching, burning, throat/lips, prickly feeling and symptoms back then, when I became an adult I chose to drink the contrast instead of letting them inject me. Is that any less harmful? Same risks?

    Let me tell you how I have every symptom listed plus some. I empathize with everyone who has been affected and impacted by medical negligence.
    I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalga, Degenerative Disc Disease, Syatica, and continue to have severe headaches/migraines, eye pressure and head, joint pain problems. I even go through periods of urination urgency or incompetence, severe neck and back pain, severe nerve damage to the point that I even went through Carpal Tunnel Release surgery on my right hand, that’s how bad it hurt and continues to hurt, whole right arm from neck all the way to fingertips.
    I struggle through College, trying to get a degree for many years, but my symptoms are so severe, that I am forced take leave of absences. My memory, behavior and attitude has been impacted by so many medical procedures, when all one had to do is test for this poison/toxin lying dormant, waiting to secretly, silently kill people.
    Although the intended purpose was probably designed to help people, but it becomes malicious when people withhold information, they know something, and can take someone’s choices and options away from a human being, that’s not fair at all.

    I’ve been having MRIs since 2000. I have a brain tumor that can’t be reached to remove it. It was treated with radiation to stop it from growing. Since then, I have lost count of the number of MRIs that I have had. Last one was within 3 months. As far as I remember, every one used contrast dye.
    I keep forgetting things like my street address, my age, waking up in the morning to rather off sights such as everything being some off color, all the same. For instance, neon green. Everyone and everything is neon green or pink, blue, yellow; each day different. Confusing my husbands age and birthday year. Headaches, back pain. I cant name it all. Its frustrating.

    Since 1992 I have had many MRI’s due to a back injury. They have been with and without dye. I have noticed when they are with the dye for a long time I can’t remember things and hurt from head to toe. I’ve had 3 back surgeries and an implant put in. But now I think a lot of my pain could be coming from this dye. I would very much like to talk to someone. Thank You.

    I had several MRI with the contrast and each time it made me through up for a bout 10 minutes. I have very bad short term memory and my back and joints feels like they can’t support my body. I thought the large bruise was because the girl didn’t know how to find a vein. My body aches all over. They said it makes peoples sometime achy but would ware off. It hasn’t yet. My neck feels like it’s broke and my left arm hurts like a spike is in it. My back is out of there.

    I had a Brain Mri and Lumbar MRI around March 15,2021. Since then I’ve Ben experiencing headaches abnormal pain in my legs knees hip and neck and nerve pain in my ribs. Severely dizzy and walking Imbalace ataxia literally into the walls. I went to hospital last Wednesday with my complaints and they did a cardiac workuo and discharged me after not finding anything wrong with my heart. I told them I believe it may be from the gadolinium from weeks prior because the symptoms didn’t begin until after the mri. They said the gadolinium doesn’t stay in my system. I told them I had a similar experience in 2013 but they dismissed my theory. On Friday April 9 2021 I fell and hit my head on the floor and back at the emergency room. After multiple torturous test and scans I was transferred to a hospital by ambulance in Eureka see neurology. My wife and I have to no avail told every doctor that I did not have all these symptoms until I got that MRI scan almost a month ago now. All have insisted that the gadolinium isn’t causing my problems yet they can’t figure it out. Meanwhile I am still hospitalized enduring all these pictures and cost and stress. Are there any physicians out there specialized in helping me ASAP Please help this is miserable. I do not have kidney disease so the doctors don’t care that I had gadolinium

    I had two MRIs on the same day with contrast and later that night I tried to speak and move my arms but no sound was coming out and my arms weren’t moving when I thought they were. I had a back injury 4 years prior and have been through multiple MRIs with contrast since. I believe that I have had so many in this time frame that I may have gandolinium in my brain.

    You can blame the pain on dye, but I can’t. Even with ear plugs, the MRI noise was tremendous !!!
    I had bad chronic head pains since a wreck in 2014. I was passing out for months and couldnt write more than a paragraph.I was a straight A college student and headed to USC for my PhD in literature. I missed out on a 20 thousand dollar fellowship a semester.
    Now I’m just a homeless person in a van with a service dog. The MRI made my different head pains MUCH worse!!!
    I am 76, tested in 1975 via Mensa & a Stanford psych for an IQ of 170.
    This is NOT from “old age”!!! I didn’t file a lawsuit against the man who totaled my van because I was so wonky. I can’t take pharmaceuticals due to extreme bad reactions but I do my research on vitamins and herbs

    Yes, I had an MRI done ordered by a doctor and since I have had that MRI done I have been experienced constant headaches, constant pain on my head that I did not have before. I also had to stop the procedure five minutes before ending it because of the pain on the sides of my head. What can help this and what can I do about it? Thank you.
