Thanks for posting your query.
Altered taste in the mouth with blurry vision and a cold sweat could be indicative of lowered blood glucose levels - hypoglycaemia or stroke.
Going for a routine evaluation and blood tests with your physician will help in diagnosis.
It could also be due to decreased thyroid hormone levels. A simple blood test will take care of that.
Your symptoms do need a medical attention and need proper investigations for diagnosis.
I hope this answers your query effectively.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
