Just wondering if ANY of my chiari friends have heard or expeirenced this. Last night it started and all day today Ive had a funny taste in my mouth kinda like metal its so weird and whatever I eat or drink it just comes right back. I looked it up and one symptom from chiari was this. Has anyone ever had this?
thats happen to before and still does on ocassion. i.also read that is actually smell is actually responsible for what food taste.. like to different people... just what ive read, dont know how.that fits in to.chiari sx.
I have experienced this a lot. Somedays nothing tastes nor smells right either. I too blame it on my drugs. I don't even want to think about a csf leak. Tho I do. I have fluid come out of my ears at weird times also and I'm trying not to think its a leak. For my whole life I've never had anything come out of ears, not even wax, ever. See my ns the 19th, so we will see. If it scares u maybe u should touch base with dr. Hugs,Dana ;)
Everything does taste different. I am pickeyy eater, i find my self mixing foods that i normally wouldn't or never liked very much. it does all the same to me. ”like cardboard like viv said. but i started to notice it ,.my smell and hearing were all going hawire.
I have it also. Either everything tastes like cardboard, or metal. I am always asking everyone around me if stuff tastes that way to them. I always thought I had a deficiency. Not on any meds, and no surgery yet.
I hope it's not a csf leak but the 1st time it happened to me that is exactly what I thought of and when I looked it up that is also what I found. I was actually having a dynamic ct scan done and when my head was rotated to the left, the pressure at the base of my skull got so severe that I thought my head was gonna explode then the metallic taste occurred. The Dr totally blew it off when I told him and I was only dx'd with chiari 3 wks ago after months of me trying to convince Drs of it. I feel like that i what it was as it hasn't happened again and I'm not on meds that would cause it. I have also felt a liquid in my ears at times when the pressure is severe. Chiari causes so many odd sx it's hard to tell, but I would definitely mention it to your Dr
no i have not had surgery yet selma and thats what i thought it could be was a csf leak so now im really scared should i call my doc tomm to see or just wait to see her wensday is it very serious like life threating idk lol? but then i ask myself how that could happen because i havent had surgery yet? could that be possiable i dont know im all new to this i book my surgery date this week in two days
yes and also im not on any meds so that wouldnt be the cause of it and i dont feel anything coming out of my ears but i do taste that metal taste in my mouth and it comes and goes its been like this for two days it suddenly happen.
no I haven't had surgery. I was actually just finally diagnosed with chiari last month. I'm going for a cine-MRI on Thursday. My thought was that it was due to the pressure build up of the CSF and that somehow it leaked out so that's why I was tasting it....like maybe no more room for it to go anywhere? I don't know....seems weird too but seemed to be only explanation for why I'd suddenly taste metal when I could feel an intense pressure build up. Keep me posted on what your Dr says....although he/she will probably blow it off like mine did.
