CT scan gives me the shivers

Postby memorris50 » Thu Jan 09, 2020 7:12 pm

Had my second CT scan yesterday. Not long after I got home I started to shiver uncontrollably. I was advised by the hospital to wrap up warmly and drink plenty to drive the contrast medium out of my system. Within the hour I was feeling a lot better. However, I am wondering if anyone knows of anything else I could be doing to reduce this side effect?
