Dr. Garg :

Hello

Dr. Garg :

I'm sorry to hear about your fiance's symptoms. Its hard for me to give you an accurate dx on what exactly is causing this.

Dr. Garg :

But I would go see a physician to whom can get a quick set of labs to make sure there's nothing obvious that can be corrected such as a B12 deficiency.

Dr. Garg :

If all that comes back normal, I would proceed to imaging such an MRI brain or CT head depending upon the physical examination

Customer:

do you think it requires an er visit this moment or can wait until morning, she's a little panicked at the moment. She just had a CT scan approx 2 months ago and they ran standard bloodwork from a car accident she was in

Customer:

all those results were fine 2 months ago

Dr. Garg :

but her symptoms started over the last month?

Dr. Garg :

after teh testing?

Dr. Garg :

correct?

Customer:

it

Customer:

it's been more noticeable in the last 2 months espec. the last month with the vision. could the b12 def. cause a strange taste in the mouth

Customer:

she had symtoms before the testing

Dr. Garg :

Severe B12 can cause those symptoms

Dr. Garg :

but so could other vitamins

Dr. Garg :

and about 100 of other things

Dr. Garg :

I suggest she follow up with a physician sooner rather than later.

Dr. Garg :

If you feel something has definitely changed tonight

Dr. Garg :

I would consider going to get emergency care

Dr. Garg :

its hard for me to tell you what exactly to do w/o seeing you

Customer:

her diet is horrible, she is approx 5'4" 110 lbs, and def doesn

Dr. Garg :

based upon the hx

Dr. Garg :

this might be a vitamin problem

Dr. Garg :

i suspect it may be, but I can't be certain

Dr. Garg :

w/o more lab information, physical exam etc

Customer:

doesn't eat correctly or correct fluids but after looking up b12 it seems very logical that it's something in the vitamin family

Customer:

shes concerned about diabetes

Customer:

type 1

Dr. Garg :

DM doesn't typically affect taste, but like I said

Dr. Garg :

w/o more information I can't give you a definite answer

Dr. Garg :

do youhave any other questions?

Dr. Garg :

Best of luck! PM with questions. Feedback is appreciated, we're compensated based on feedback

Customer:

that should do it, i appreciate the assistance.
