Question IVP side effects???

I had an IVP done this morning at 7:30 am. About an hour after it was done I developed a headache not the kind I am used to from my jaw disorder this is an ALL over headache from the base of my skull to the top of my head, both temples, forehead and behind my eyes. If I cough my head feels like it wants to burst. I also have this kinda weird feeing in my tummy kinda like fluish. Anyway this could be possibly the flu or start of a cold but what I would like to know is could this awful headache be a side effect of the "dye" they used for the IVP Xray? Thank you in advance if anyone replys.

Did you get a creatinine blood test before your IVP? It could be that your creat. was elevated. It can cause a horrible headache and make you feel as if you have the flu. I would ask you doc to run the blood test before anything else to make sure your kidneys are functioning properly.

i had an IVP done today 5/7 and a little while afterwards had a headache..i called my pharmacist to see what i could take for it (was unsure since my system was empty from the prep) and he said that the headache was more than likely from not having eaten the day before and having to do the intestinal prep.
