Could depression or other psychiatric condition cause a 180 reversal in palate, i.E. Cause a lifelong healthy eater to crave fatty fast foods?

Hard to say...: Dopamine (DA) is not measured in clinical labs. It's extremely rapidly metabolized along a variety of pathways. Further, DA levels in blood bear little resemblance to DA activity in the brain - even less to the small brain regions and synapses where DA signaling is concentrated. Though DA *might* be relevant, the symptoms you describe could have a very large number of non-DA causes. ...Read more

So many health problems. Allergies asthma hair loss hyperhydrosis constipation weight gain anxiety depression weakness ed.What can cause this all?
46 year-old with Graves disease and gluten hypersensitivity, had 30 min of L hemicranial aura-type symptoms and L visual disturbance. Migraine....?
Likely migraine aura, but...: Great textbook description of a classical migraine aura, and indeed in the end, this is most likely the answer. However, in view of first episode, in context of a complicated medical history, I would recommend excluding vascular insufficiency from a different ischemic mechanism. To clarify issues, might have a good ophthalmological exam, do a carotid duplex study, and even consider MRI films of brain. Some blood studies to reassure include sed rate, CRP, fibrinogen, homocysteine, and maybe HgbA1-C and lipids. Statistically, would expect much of above to be negative. If this ever occurs again, can abort process by hyperventilating into a small paper or plastic bag for about 3-4 minutes, but could bring on a nasty headache. Hopefully, my comments will be of relevance. ...Read moreSee 9 more doctor answers
