Brief Answer: MRI does not cause allergies commonly Detailed Answer: Hi, MRI is relatively safer investigation. Was it a contrast that was injected in the vein. If yes the contrast is known to cause allergy in some individuals. However it is nothing to worry. Very soon the affects wane off. I suggest you to relax at this time. Investigations are a stress to a person physically and mentally. So there can be such stress that is added to the allergic reaction causing hallucinations. All of these should subside in 48 to 72 hours. If not please seek help from the local doctor/treating physician.
