Avatar f tn I've noticed months after the hemorrhagic stroke that I still have minimal numbness in the lower part of my leg and sensitivity in my left arm and hand everything else is fine. Has anyone experienced a change in their sense of taste?
667923 tn?1421462724 I have been experiencing intense pain,numbness on the whole left side of body. The weakness has been so bad that I can't even move my left hand or foot.I felt like a 40lb. weight was laying on my hand and foot to keep it from moving. I felt like I was having a stroke and after doing research on it, I did. Maybe it was an Ischemic attack or TIA. I have had 3 or 4 of these attacks and don't want to wind up having a full blown STROKE.
Avatar f tn I've been to two doctors on this, but my symptoms have changed. I'm very freightened and don't know what's going on. Two weeks ago I became very light headed. It lasted for over a week and a half. One week into it, I lost my sense of taste and had a sore on the left side of my tongue. Also, one week into it, I found that I could not write or type well anymore. The first doctor had no idea what was going on. I got blood tests and a shot of b12 and nothing happened.
Avatar n tn My head got very tingly like thousands of needles stabbing me at the top of my head. I also got a weird metallic taste in my mouth and strange thoughts went through my head. This only lasted about 20 seconds and when it was over I could not remember what the thoughts were that went through my head. I almost felt a little confused although I knew where I was and what I was doing.
877060 tn?1240204020 I'M A RECENT STROKE SURVIVOR (01/09) AND AM NOW IN THE REHAB AND RECOVERY PROCESS. I SUFFERED AN ACUTE STROKE OF THE CEREBELLUM THAT ALSO AFFECTED MY BRAIN STEM AND RIGHT HEMISPHERE. I'M 42 YEARS OLD AND DID NOT HAVE ANY OF THE COMMON HEALTH ISSUES ASSOCIATED WITH A STROKE (MY WEIGHT, BLOOD SUGAR, NEVER TOOK BIRTH CONTROL, BP WAS NORMAL, ETC). I WAS DIAGNOSED AS HAVING Antiphospholipid syndrome.
Avatar n tn There are many things that could cause problems with taste. If this has just happened you should go to the emergency room to rule out a stroke or other vascular event. Let us know what happens. Welcome to our community too!

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 n tn I am also aware that these are also symtoms of a stroke. Could this medicine caused me to have a stroke or stroke like symptoms? Any help or andvice whould be very much appreciated. Thank you!
Avatar n tn I don't know how old you are....but the numbness in your face, the metal taste, and vomiting would be enough to send me to the ER. That almost sounds like a little stroke. Did you have any residual numbness...did all of your symptoms go away...
Avatar n tn The eye specialist is impressed with the progress with his eyesight, but the sleepiness, fogginess, taste persists. Will these symptoms improve also? If so, what timeframe?

Avatar n tn My stroke was caused to a clot in the right pons. Can someone give me information about the function of the pons? I know it is located in the brain stem, but I do not know its function, i.e language, balance, etc.
Avatar f tn Is there anything that I MYSELF can do? Could this be a sign that I had another stroke or mini-stroke during that blackout moment? For a year & a 1/2 I have tried to see a neuorologist (and accomplished seeing 2) but our health insurance has continously been cancelled & changed ever since & each time I get to actually see a neurologist, it takes months to get in & I have no insurance again by the time of the follow up.
1438195 tn?1328353252 It could be a cavity, dehydration, pregnancy or even a stroke. But clearly not a stroke or you would know it.
1474856 tn?1288289049 numbness or weakness in the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body; confusion or difficulty in talking or understanding speech; trouble seeing in one or both eyes; and difficulty with walking, dizziness, or loss of balance and coordination. I have this all the time, but the Dr's just keep saying it is just migraine. I am so worried about feeling like this constantly, but i encountered a problem when i tried to see a new Dr within the Henry Ford health system.
Avatar f tn A month ago my mother went numb on the left side of her face, when she smiled even the left side was unreactive for a long time. Two weeks ago she lost her sense of taste, she had issues with taste in general but mostly with tasting salt. The past few days she has been really dizzy and says her vision is a bit blurred at times. I am concerned she has had a stroke...maybe multiple...and the doctors are ignoring it. The doctors today diagnosed her with Virtigo...
Avatar m tn Recently I have been smelling foul odors in my nose and even sometimes having the same taste in my mouth. The odour smells very much like my feces which also has not been normal lately. Is this possible?
Monster I recently had a hemorrhagic stroke. Doc put me on two BP meds, a water pill and statin cholesterol pill. I have never had high cholesterol. I am tired all the time, lost sense of taste, and foggy brain function... I read this could be due to statins. Is it safe to just stop the statin drug?
Avatar n tn My tongue has chged now, I no longer taste metallic now it is salt or asprin taste. I brush my teeth with cool minty gel and there is no coolness from the mint and it seem the more stimulation my tongue has the salter things are. If my tongue is not stimulated then it taste like asprin. I had an altoid the other day (cinnamon usally very hot)I could smell the cinnamon but my tongue had no sense of how hot it was.
Avatar n tn These are the symptoms I have. Some come and go periodically and some are present most of the time. Can anyone give me any suggestions as to what might be going on?
655045 tn?1225473924 and a high powered MRI showed that I did have a larger lesion, but not in the place that would cause the symptoms I experienced. Symptoms persisted for months and have since gotten better slowly over time with the help of physical therapy. I still have all of the symptoms that I originally experienced, but now they are less severe. (For example, I still have left sided weakness, but I have gained back enough strength to walk again.
Avatar f tn It kind of sounds like Bell's palsy. My husband had it for a month last year. It's just the nerve in your face that stops responding for a small amount of time and it usually happens when your immune system is already compromised from something. He has been fine for months now, but it was annoying for him when it happened. You do have to see a doctor or go to the hospital though just so they can confirm that's it. It is similar to stroke symptoms so it's always better to check.
