Stroke signs smell

Common Questions and Answers about Stroke signs smell


Avatar m tn For several months now I have had a constant sweet smell and taste in my nose and mouth. I consulted the doctor and had all the blood tests required for diabetes etc. All the tests came back normal. The doctor said that it could be a sinus infection, and all he could do is prescribe an anti-biotic. Can anyone shine any light on my problem ?.
Avatar f tn Does anyone else experience "phantom smells"? I smell cigarette smoke on and off (no one around me or in my home/work place smokes). It's not all the time, but sometimes it's very strong. I mentioned this at TCI and the MD recommended a 24 hour EEG if this keeps happening as it could be a type of seizure. I'm having a sleep study done later this month and the sleep MD agrees and says that the EEG I'm hooked up to during the study may pick this up. Anyone else have this?
407149 tn?1211736107 Oookay, so, it's a little strange, really, because I've gotten this quite a few times over the last few years, and it usually lasts a week, sometimes less, but it's never been this strong. When I breathe in and ESPECIALLY when I breathe out I can smell gasoline, but it smells a little sweeter... It's weird and it annoys me and is distracting me from my work.
Avatar n tn Hello, For a while i have been smelling a burning smell in my nose, kind of like smoke. It's not constant, somedays it's there and some it's not, i don't know what it is, i searched around and couldn't really find much, any info would be great.
Avatar n tn It is nonsense that incontinence after a stroke is forever. There is more nonsense going on about how to care for the stroke damaged elderly than I can believe. So never give up hope.
Avatar n tn My mom had good health and no warning signs before the stroke, not even a headache, my dad found her this way mid-morning. The neurosurgeon did not offer much hope for us to survive the stroke nor in her recovery. She has already beat the odds. My mom was in ICU for 3 weeks and step-down 1 week and in rehab hospital for two months now. I have come to learn the dr.'s don't like or really now prognosis on recovery because everyone recovers differently.
Avatar f tn I had a CT scan done. The doctor told me I was showing signs of mild emphysema. Everything I find on the Internet is negative and scary. I wasn't sure what this meant and prognosis.
1148481 tn?1261771012 ) Is is possible you were just ovulating when you felt that strange pain? then again sometimes your body can give you signs very early b4 a test could pick up anything. Nausea was an early sign for me when I was pg b4.
Avatar n tn Why do I have the constant smell of smoke in my nose. It used to be just an occasional thing, but lately it seems to be all the time. I am concerned that this is a symptom of something I don't know about. The smell is strong. I used to notice it about a half hour after taking my Allegra-D 12 hr. tablets, but now I smell it much more often. Am I going crazy or is there something to this I'm not aware of. Has anyone else experienced this? Please help?
604197 tn?1292308636 My son suffered a TBI and one of first questions when he woke up was did he feel like he could smell foods etc. These senses (smell and taste) in his case seemed to be heighten - he said he could smell things that we couldn't or when he tasted something it was very salty to him. One year out these seem to have settled down - he doesn't complain that things taste salty anymore and when asked by the doctors he says that his sense of smell is normal again.
Avatar n tn Started feeling weird back in december, fatique, headaches, weakness, trouble spelling, etc..etc. Had Ct scan in march, results came back normal, is it possible for to me to had a stroke and it heal completely in 3 months, to where it would not be detected? Also, had mri done in june..results came back normal as well.
Avatar m tn Now, she is what we call, 'presenting' herself by pushing her backside up when we try to stroke her. She goes into the position she would when mating. She is wanting to go outside at night, which we have tried not to do, as we have 2 rescue cats which we keep inside at night. Our other cat is male and gives her a hard time by jumping on her which hurts her as he is 6.6 kg and she is only 4.2 kg. Could she be giving off a scent we can't smell?
Avatar m tn Over 2months ago in jan 8th, when i took generic benadryl with dextromorphan, acetomeniphen, phenyleprine,(pill. after about an hour, noticed i loss about 99 of smell which in turn made me unable to taste certain flavors. Throughout the whole day i started feeling unusually shivering and cold. and notice i started to get tingling on the left side of my body. the next day my smell hasnt returned, and i went to the ER, was afriad it was a stroke or some brain injury.
Avatar f tn He was 8 years of age, approximately 80lbs, and showed no signs of being sick before he passed. The night before he played like he always had and ate his dog food as usual. On the morning of his passing he was with me in my room most of the morning. He slept most of the time (which was normal for him) and I gave him crust from a sandwich I was eating.
Avatar n tn The hand effected by my husband's brain hemorrhage has had a smell to it ever since the stroke. We have tried numerous soaps to try and remove the smell but it always comes back. Would like to know what causes this and if there is a treatment for this. It is the left side of his body that was effected but only the hand has the strong odor. He is able to partially extend fingers so it's not closed up completely. Thank you.
Avatar m tn I am periodically smelling/tasting a foul odor that appears to be coming from my nasal passages. It smells like rotting flesh! Sometimes I smell it when just sitting around. I ALWAYS smell it when I bend over. Of course, I am concerned and I hoped that someone could offer some guidance in rectifying this matter. This has been going on for around 6 months. I haven't been sick (cold/flu) in that time and I'm not showing any other signs of a sinus infection.
1392168 tn?1280078008 I am worried as I have heard this can mean all sorts from brain tumours to signs of stroke. I don't have any signs of stroke however I have been seeing odd colours and my eyes have been being blurry recently. But I thought that was because I was online too much as my eyes are photosensitive. Other people have told me it is just sense memory and my mind playing tricks, as I do have a history of anxiety and paranoia. Please help, I'm getting very worried.
Avatar n tn Good nursing care is fundamental in maintaining skin care, feeding, hydration, positioning, and monitoring vital signs such as temperature, pulse, and blood pressure. Stroke rehabilitation begins almost immediately and can last anywhere from a few days to over a year. Complete recovery is unusual but not impossible and most patients will improve to some extent. ref: Rehabilitation and you are the 2 key factors in assissting him. God bless you with patience .
Avatar f tn does Alz run in the family, has she has a stroke, hit her head? whats her age. heres some signs of Alz. Changes in personality and behavior Brain changes that occur in Alzheimer's disease can affect the way you act and how you feel.
Avatar f tn After the last time my sense of smell is really bad. I can still smell a bit up close but it's not much at all. Also I always used to have a naturally runny nose and blocked sinuses and now it just feels scarily clear and there seems to be very little mucous production. I looked in my nostrils at the beginning of the week and noticed how red and raw the membrane over the septum area is. I rushed to my doctor who sent me to an ent.
Avatar f tn Cats and dogs sense pregnancy!
Avatar n tn He is also loosing function in his right hand. His cardiologist did a CT scan of the head which was normal, ruling out stroke or brain bleed. His bloodwork was normal. A nuclear stress test has been done & we will receive those results in 2 days. Any thoughts on what could be causing this new symptom? He takes Coreg, Cozaar, Lipitor, Digoxin, Nexium, Niaspan & Allopurinol.
Avatar n tn If the smell is a more fruity smell it may be a sign of diabetic ketoacidosis, which is a potentially acute emergency. An ammonia/salty fishy smell is a sign of renal failure. All of these are signs that should be taken very seriously.
Avatar dr m tn This is why it's important to inhale through your nose, especially when you are exercising. Your smell and taste buds are connected. If you can't breathe well through your nose, then your sense of smell will suffer, which means that your sense of taste will be altered as well. This can lead to appetite and weight issues. Your nose has vital nervous system connections to your lungs and heart.
Avatar n tn I started smelling it about 2 weeks ago and have been on antibiotics for 5 days and the smell is gone but now I can't breathe through my nose. I get the smell before any signs of infection and it takes about 2-3 weeks before I get actual nasal congestion. Pay attention next time it happens and see if you get a sinus infection or cold shortly after....Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
Avatar f tn Are these any signs of his liver being on the road to shutting down? He won't see a doctor, or get a test done. Just wondering how long does he have? We're hoping perhaps of he goes to a hospital they might do a liver biopsy.
Avatar m tn so in other words ive been urniating just as many times as i would normally...i dont have any discharge or funny smell. i dont see any signs of swollen or red area around the top of my penis. Its basically all inside i think??... I ve been with my wife for 9 years, i would almost have to rule out STDs???.. and we havent been sexually active in awhile due to her own personal reasons(and i am ok with that)...
1917408 tn?1421955640 Sometimes I smell something like rotten food but no one else can smell it and there is no logical reason it should be there. My doctor was shocked when my MRI came back "clean", he had me listed as clinically probably MS. However, I only had a brain MRI w/ and w/o contrast. No spinal MRI no Optic Nerve MRI, no LP. According to some things I've read, I would assume that I would be more likely to have lesions of my Cervical MRI and Optic Nerve MRI.
Avatar m tn early on in the weekend around sunday the 9th and Tuesday night, I started smelling and tasting a strong taste and smell of blood, yet when I tried to make any come out of my nose or mouth, no blood case out.After Sunday, I remember the smell of taste of blood subsiding a little bit before smelling a tasting a strong renewed smell and taste of blood tuesday night.
Avatar n tn But I thought hemeroids were on the outside, this was like half an inch to an inch inside my anal cavity with no outside signs of hemeroid. But im not sure if this had anything to do with it anyways, Just mentioning. Personally I think the hemeroid came from drinking diet pop, because it began as soon as I began solely drinking it and stopped a week after I stopped drinking it. Anyways, back to my skin irritation, I thought no big deal, maybe it would go away, and was a one time deal.
