Hello,

Welcome to Just Answer:

It is possible that there is underlying abnormal brain stimulation which cause areas of the brain that control movement as well as smell to reaction inappropriately. Both of these areas are located toward the front part of the brain, and you are showing both symptoms of abnormal smell and movement with weakness. I suggest that you follow-up with your doctor for closer evaluation with CT Scan and/or MRI of the brain. You should also be evaluated with EEG. These studies should not wait for months, they should be done as soon as possible to exclude the presence of a abnormal lesions, including meningoma.

It was a pleasure to assist you. Please, allow me get credit for my time and effort in assisting you and press the ACCEPT button for this assist. I will be glad to answer additional questions until you are satisfied. Thank you so much.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
