Hello there. I can understand your concern. As this question has been answered yesterday also and that too by many of our doctors. I feel its unlikely that meftal could be a cause of it. Just forget about it for now, sometimes high temperatures are known to cause these. If it repeats you can consult a neurologist and get his opinion. Best regards. Dr. Anil Kumar Jain.
