Hi Adrienne

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

Chronic microvascular ischemia happens commonly with age .Its presence keeps you at a risk of high incidence of stroke.So it is important for you to start stroke precautions.Problem in your taste and smell senses might be due to the same.
Please do not panic .Please get a complete neurological examination with your Neurologist.

Take care dear.
