Can migraines be a side effect of CT IV contrast dye? Had contrast before w/o issue. Today got migraine 15-20 min post-contrast injection.

So do make sure you're hydrating well enough that it would dilute the effects of the contrast dye. Make sure you didn't possibly eat or do any of the triggers that are known to cause migraines too.
