@avmcbellar I’m so sorry that you can’t taste and have a metallic taste now. I, too, have lost some taste, even my favorite ice cream doesn’t taste great anymore. 😥 Did the rupture of the AVM and subsequent surgery, affect a part of the brain responsible for taste? Not sure how old you are, but we lose taste and smell as we age. Any infection or inflammation can also be responsible. I would suggest seeing an ear, nose, and throat doctor (ENT). Get a good checkup and have a discussion. And see if he/she will refer to a large medical center for further testing. Best of luck! And let us know what you find out!
