Did you have an MRI in which gadolinium contrast was used?
Did you develop serious side effects as a result of gadolinium poisoning?
A December 2017 safety alert from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) states that some patients who received a gadolinium-based contrast during an MRI may retain the gadolinium in their bodies for months to years, causing serious side effects.
While the FDA said that gadolinium toxicity can cause a rare condition known as nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF) that occurs in patients with pre-existing kidney problems, the FDA has also received reports of multi-organ system failure in patients with normal kidney function.
The FDA has received several reports of gadolinium side effects including:
- Pain and burning sensation in the arms, legs, and torso
- Cognitive difficulties or “brain fog”
- Memory impairment
- Bone and joint pain
- Spongy or rubbery skin
- Thickened and painful ligaments
- Tightness in the hands and feet
If you had an MRI with gadolinium contrast and developed gadolinium poisoning in the months or years after the MRI, you may be eligible to participate in a free gadolinium toxicity class action lawsuit investigation.

What Is Gadolinium Contrast?
Intravenous gadolinium contrast agents are commonly used in MRIs to enhance the images the test provides. Gadolinium is a heavy metal and its magnetic qualities improve the visualization of organs, blood vessels, and tissues. Gadolinium contrast enhances a doctor’s ability to diagnose cancer, infections, bleeding, and other serious conditions.
However, recent data has shown that gadolinium may be retained in the body for months or years after injection, leading to gadolinium poisoning. While the FDA released a safety alert in December 2017, saying that gadolinium retention can lead to a rare condition called nephrogenic system fibrosis (NSF). This condition has been black box warned for years.
It has since been learned that gadolinium toxicity can occur in those with normal kidney function.
Chuck Norris’ Gadolinium MRI Lawsuit
In November 2017, actor Chuck Norris announced that he and his wife, Gena Norris, filed a gadolinium MRI lawsuit against three different drug companies alleging that Gena was poisoned by the MRI contrast agent.
Norris alleged that his wife developed debilitating gadolinium side effects five years after receiving a gadolinium contrast injection during an MRI. Gena has allegedly experienced cognitive impairment, burning body pain, kidney damage, loss of mobility, low energy, and difficulty breathing.
According to the gadolinium MRI lawsuit, pharmaceutical companies are not taking responsibility for the gadolinium side effects their products can cause.
“Unfortunately, litigation is the only course of action we can take to hold the drug companies accountable for threatening the lives of so many innocent people who undergo MRIs,” Gena said in a statement. “These companies continue to say that there is no link between gadolinium and adverse events, even though the evidence is overwhelming that this heavy metal stays in the body for years, rather than hours.”
