    Side effects?

    Hi I'm 13 and I get headaches a lot and my pediatrician is trying to get me to see a neurologist. And she ordered a mri so the don't have to do one when I go there. She ordered one with contrast and without. What I'm wondering is what is the fluid they put in the IV?! Can it have side effects or what? I'm just really confused about what the fluid is for a mri with contrast???
