My husband was diagnosed with stage IV GBM April 29, 2009. Since his diagnosis he has had three MRI's. Each time they start injecting the contrast he feels it go right to his muscles. He has troubles walking after the MRI and his muscles take about three weeks to get back to normal. Has anyone else ever had this problem? He wants to refuse the MRI's due to the tightening of his muscles and the pain when he walks. His doctors have never heard of anyone having this problem. There suggestion is prednasone and benadryl.

    i asked my husband and he does not recall that happening to him. i think that maybe it is lying in that tube for so long may make him sore. i hope he does not stop the mris they are the only way to tell if his treatment is working.
