I was recently told by a lay-person, that the dye used in tests such as
mylograms some twenty years ago, can eventually cause damage to the myelin
sheath, I had three mylograms twenty two years ago and am aware through a
recent MRI, that there is still dye in my body, is it possible that this dye
could cause a problem?
