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.
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.
If all that comes back normal, I would proceed to imaging such an MRI brain or CT head depending upon the physical examination
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
all those results were fine 2 months ago
but her symptoms started over the last month?
after teh testing?
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
she had symtoms before the testing
Severe B12 can cause those symptoms
but so could other vitamins
and about 100 of other things
I suggest she follow up with a physician sooner rather than later.
If you feel something has definitely changed tonight
I would consider going to get emergency care
its hard for me to tell you what exactly to do w/o seeing you
her diet is horrible, she is approx 5'4" 110 lbs, and def doesn
based upon the hx
this might be a vitamin problem
i suspect it may be, but I can't be certain
w/o more lab information, physical exam etc
doesn't eat correctly or correct fluids but after looking up b12 it seems very logical that it's something in the vitamin family
shes concerned about diabetes
DM doesn't typically affect taste, but like I said
w/o more information I can't give you a definite answer
do youhave any other questions?
