well Hi! My name is Bethany and about 4months ago I was involved in an freak/car accident (Long Story).Well I ended up becoming unconsious for a short period of time( I don't know how long because I suffer from the short memory loss of the whole accident and hospital stay).I was bleeding out my nose,and the back of my head and couldn't stop vomiting even after getting IV's of differnt stuff to keep to stop throwing up. I ended up being stat flighted to a really really bad hospital (LONG STORY) After being in the Emergency room with dealing with a shitty nurse who was to busy NOT taking care of anyone busy playing Solitare on a computer. I sat in pain for 21/2 hours and still throwing up. Finally after the 21/2 hours I saw a doctor and got a cat scan done. After talking to 3 doctors and getting 3 differnt diagonsis I was finally diagonesd with a Basilar Skull Fracture,2 contusions,some intracerebal hemorrhageing, loss of smell and taste and if there was anything else going on I don't remember it.I ended up after leaving 1 hospital because they sent me home to early I was admitted into another hospital.After the hospital stay I did a month of physical therapy for my Neck and Back. Well since my accident I have been in and out of doctor offices. I have suffered from Headaches and Migraines everyday since my accident. So haveing a headache and migraines everyday sucks!
Well the middle of August my family took a vacation to Florida, Went to universal studios rode rides rode a plane there. Well this new symptom appeard that I didn't know what it meant. My husband and I were driving alone on our way to the beach and all of sudden I smelled this Burning smoke smell and he couldn't smell it. Then it got even stronger and I started to taste this taste I have never tasted before in my life (it was kind of like a metal like taste) Very strange. Then the smoke smell turned into a burning hair like smell. I have been experiencing this almost everyday varying in how stong the smell is at times. The taste veries at times I can't taste some food right especially beef. Now the past two days everything I have ate taste gross even Chocolate which I love.I have also started to see like dots of colors at times that really arent there.Since my accident im still on a lot of meds.To prevent headaches,migraines,seizures and nausea. I recently had a two MRI's done one with contast and without and at the end of this month my doctor is doing an EEG. My doctor said it's a good indication that im having seizures but, I don't know if im in denial but, I feel like im not just because i just think it's something probably going on with my loss of smell and maybe I have nerve damage or something. I don't know. I was hoping someone will respond who maybe going through the same thing or maybe tell me what they think if it seizures or not. I'm really worried about if it is seizures because I really dont know anything about seizures.Thanks anybody who replies to my post!
