Hi, @avmcbellar – I would be wondering, too, if I had a change in taste all of a sudden. Since you've had the 2 years of being extremely sensitive to sweets and then a bitter taste in your mouth, I'd like to tag some members on Connect and see if thy have any thoughts for you, like @skullzmarie @afrobin @lioness @sirgalahad @becsbuddy.

Do you attribute this to any medication you are taking or any diagnosis you have?

can be related to loss of smell and if using regular medicine can impact the taste buds and in particular salt and oomani . I am asthmatic and the steroids and the sprays I have taken have impacted severely on my ability to taste in particular salt and a lot of food to me is quite tasteless . Also could be post nasal drip and gingivitis of issues with dental health .I would chat to an ENT or immunologist and or dental surgeon

@avmcbellar Thanks Lisa just read this post. I know how bad that taste is . I have had it on occasion and it can becoming from different source beside medicine. How,s your stomach that will cause some bad taste in mouth, disease,s also I have dry mouth so use ACT its for dry mouth. You,ll get a horrible taste in your mouth if you don't have enough saliva. Other parts of your intestines can cause it also . Hope some of this may help you,ll just have to investigate all things. Good luck

For several years now, when I eat dark chocolate, it taste sweet & delicious until after I swallow and then I get a very unpleasant, bitter taste in my mouth. For several months now, I wake up with my tongue seemingly glued to the roof of my mouth feeling very dry. This goes for my lips also. I think it may be a spreading of my SFN as my tongue will remain sore throughout the day. I'm worried but awaiting a referral to a new neurologist.
