I hate it when my taste buds go ga-ga. Do yours ever get seriously weirdo? It seems as though when I'm at the bottom of the energy barrel, which is where I am over the last few days, my sense of taste goes either missing or out of whack.
I was crunching a few potato chips yesterday. And they tasted like sardines.
That was new. And seriously strange. Most often when my sense of taste just doesn't seem right, everything has a bitter aftertaste. But like sardines?
The Sjogren's Syndrome Foundation addressed sense of taste in one of it's Tip Tuesdays, found on the SSF Facebook page, here. While I found the tip useful in that it validated my experience, the numerous comments that followed were even more interesting.
Tip Tuesday: A diminished sense of taste may occur with Sjögren’s because of the lack of saliva. While there is no specific treatment for taste disorders found in Sjögren’s, using liquids to wet the food in your mouth may help increase the taste.
