I am new to this website. I was diagnosed with Epilepsy after 2 tonic-clonic seizures on March 27, 2008. One neurologist diagnosed me with a severe case of eplispsy. I went for a second opinion and this neurologist said my seizure was provoked and I do not have epilepsy. I've just finished weaning off Keppra, 2 weeks ago.
For the past 1.5 days, I have had a really strange (maybe metallic) taste. It's not necessarily in my mouth, but it's on my lips and my skin. So, in other words, I taste metallic and so does some of my food. I didn't think it was at all related to epilepsy (because I was told I didn't have it), until I looked up the symptom in WebMD. On WebMD, strange tastes, acid tastes, metallic tastes, bad tastes and unusual tastes all point to epilepsy (and poisoning, heartburn, antibiotic use, etc...none of which I have). I am not really sure what to think......could this be an aura? Does anyone out there have this same symptom, prior to seizures?
Any help or opinions are greatly appreciated!
