I had a severe TBI AND CHI after being hit by a drunk driver 5. Years ago. As a result, I struggle with migraines, balance, etc. recently the migraines changed. And are more severe and in a differen location. Dramatic changes in emotional health as well as severe changes to vision have also occurred...all inside the last month. Today a we symptom appeared....everything I drink tastes like pure salt.....any idea as to what is going on? Can these symptoms be a result of the wreck five years ago.....this salt thing is driving me crazy and I seem a little foggy too..
