Has anyone ever had cardiolite reaction?

Has anyone had a reaction to Cardiolite? I had injections yesterday during a stress test ,and all night I felt like I couldn't get enough to drink. Today my tounge feels like its on fire. How long does this remain in your system, and how much radiation have I been exposed to?

Asked by Ramiro Cornmesser 3 years ago.

If you have an allergic reaction of sorts it usually occurs within mins not sometime the next day. The amount of radiation is equivalent to a CT scan so it's really not that much. The half life is 6.02 hrs so it remains in the system for approx 2 days.
