I just had an Arteriogram on my left leg. Moments after the injection of the contrast agent, my left calf and foot went into a severe spasm during the procedure.  There was a controlled panic in the room as all involved were rushing to my aid to see what the problem was.  One of the attendants had to massage my leg, with the cath in it, to relieve the spasm.  This took about 3 mins, but felt like an eternity as the pain was so intense.  I was crying and sobbing with tears.  I believe it can cause it, as it just happened to me.

Can having a ct scan with contrast a week and a half before having a TSH level alter the results and if so how much so

I had a CT Scan with contrast die in 2008. I immediately had muscle spams. I still have them to this day and do not know what to to about it. My doctor thinks they should be gone at this point.
