Default Echocardigram w/Definity

I experienced flushing, and extreme pressure starting about chest high and moving down through my back to my backside where it finally disapated. I got pretty panicked before the pain subsided. I had a catherization a couple of weeks later and had extreme back pain (maybe from the contrast dye?) during the procedure. Are these two dyes related in some way?

the reaction may not be dye related. the definity may have acted like an embolism blocking your bloodflow a little bit. that could cause pain in the back. during you cath they may have reversed blood thinners with a drug, if given fast enough, it can cause back pain.
