Thanks for using Healthcaremagic. You are suffering from epilepsy. Persons with epilepsy can have premonitory symptoms called auras. Auras can be of taste, smell and so on. One has to rule out orbito-frontal lesions which can cause problems like this. Consult a Neurophysician who is good in treating epilepsy and your problems will be solved.Bye

if it is really blood can be confimed by examination or test....your feeling of heaviness and something presure inside may have several reasons......most common being SINUSITIS or in the context of epilepsy...some intracranial cause ......or may be something benign......ALL U NEED IS TO GO TO A GOOD PHYSICIAN OR a neurophysician nearby
