What causes flu symptoms, headache, fever, fast heartbeat after having CT scan?

I had a CT scan done yesterday morning. I developed symptoms of flu, headaches and fever of 39deg C. My blood pressure is in my normal range i.e. 105 65 but my heartbeat is around 100. Today is the second day after the scan and the symptoms persist. Appreciate your advice.

Hello,

Was the CT scan done after giving an injection like was a dye injected? This could be an allergic reaction. If at all the dye was injected, please drink plenty of water.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Haleema Yezdani, General & Family Physician
