Everything Tastes Like Mint

I am worried that I may have had some sort of small stroke and/or seizure a few weeks ago. Also just today everything I eat & drink has started tasting vaguely of mint, even water?

I tried calling NHS 111 but can't get through. Should I be worried at all? Also there are 'lines' of a sort a burning/fizzing sensation in my head, and especially my forehead. No idea what is going on. :confused:

    I think seeking medical advice is your best bet here. I don't fully know what that looks like where you live so it is hard to be certain on the details. Going to the equivalent of Urgent Care at a minimum seems like the way to go.

    Definitely go see a doctor ASAP. In the immediate term consider common environmental causes like carbon monoxide poisoning, nutritional deficiencies, new foods/clothes/deodorants/etc. You may not be able to do anything about them right now (except maybe the CO poisoning) but it's good to take inventory beforehand, because your doctor will absolutely ask you about them and you want to be as thorough as possible.

    Ugh, that's terrible to hear. Sorry you caught the bug. =( Hope you get well soon!

    The good news is being vaccinated means your chances of coming out of this OK are significantly higher. The main things vaccination prevents are hospitalization and death - not catching COVID in the first place is more of an ideal.

    Good luck, Zilla. The only rhing I know to do is treat it like the flu, if you've been vaxxed. So keep warm, eat, drink lots of fluids.

    Changes to sense of taste or smell are a very typical Covid symptom. A doctor will not be concerned.
