Taste sensation GONE - IBD, Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis, Crohn's
Hi @tazo, I echo @johnbishop 's welcome. I have UC and I know the difficulties that come with having multiple gastric problems. I agree with John that seeing an ENT might be very helpful. It hasn't been proven, but there have been studies on linking Oral Lichen Planus to autoimmune disorders. You might want to consult with your physician on that. Here is a link on that from Mayo Clinic. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/oral-lichen-planus/symptoms-causes/syc-20350869
In addition to the loss of taste, are you having pain in your mouth and tongue?

Thank you for the suggestions. ENT is next on my list to visit for sure. From the tip of tongue back 1/3 has fissures. These burn and is sensitive to some foods and I will sometimes bite my cheeks if I'm not careful chewing, and of course, that hurts but past that no pain. 2nd third of tongue is flat and shiny and all the way back is white bumps. The strange thing is that the roof of my mouth and tongue are very smooth. I was never aware of any texture to my mouth until I didn't have it any longer. ENT is next stop. Thank you so much.
