MRI head pain

Hello! I was diagnosed last year and have had 2 MRIs with contrast since. Both times, near the end of the MRI, after I received contrast, the back of my head starts burning. Almost like it’s on fire. It’s so uncomfortable and nearly impossible to finish the MRI while it’s happening. The last time I had it done, I started crying in the machine. Which is embarrassing. I asked the MRI tech when I came out if that is normal, and she said that she had someone else tell her that the other day. So maybe it’s normal? Has this ever happened to anyone else?! If so, any tips on what to do during an MRI to help with the burning? Thank you!!
