  • Itchy spotty red rash around implanon site


  • From this study (11 months ago):

  • This is a condition that's been going on for five years. If I were to bite into a piece of cake or candy, it would taste bitter.Anything you can think of that is generally sweet, including fruit, tastes bitter. Meals lack the flavor that they should have.When I eat chicken soup for instance, If I don't add a bouillion cube to it, the soup would be tasteless.If you have any knowledge concerning this condition, please contact me. Five years is a long time to deal with this.


  • From this study (12 months ago):

  • Vertigo, nausea and deafness seem to come and go. I also get fulness in the ear. With no seemingly causing factor. Was told I had meniers disease. However have now been told I may have auditory neuropathy.
