What causes phantom smells in someone with lateral medullary syndrome?
Could be related to the old stroke.
Thank you for getting back.
I have noted your new symptoms. I would like to reassure you that these new symptoms are probably related to the old brain stroke.
If symptoms persist, you may need to see your neurologist.
Also, if those symptoms are troubling you, medications such as oxcarbazepine may help you suppress these sensations.
I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.
Wishing you good health,
