Anyone Have Bad Smells And Taste?

Anyone Have Bad Smells And Taste?

My Dr. caught seizure event while I was asleep during an EEG. For a very long time I taste strong alcohol on my breath day and night, especially when I wake up. I have not drank any alcohol in 5 years, not even social. Any body else ever had that smell. I do still have that horrible iron or metallic taste too.

My neurologist did say it could be an aura because there are many types of auras. So, I will treat it as so and be careful and close to safe areas. Although I hate them with a passion, those auras have been a life saver many times. I am one of those people that was having seizures for years and was self medicating my self until my body caved in. Then I learned that there are a numerous types of seizures/epilepsy. I also learned that some tastes can be affiliated with heart disease
