I was thinking about my loss of taste last night/ today and I thought of the perfect way to explain this bizarre symptom I have had a few times over the coarse of my MS life. When I have loss of taste it’s not like a light switch; on or off. I can still taste things just not the way they are supposed to be tasted. Same with the numbness in my mouth and on my lips; I can still feel but not the way I am supposed to feel. It’s like when you get numbed up at the dentist and your lip feels fat; you could bite it and bleed and it probably wouldn’t hurt much but at the same time you could still tell that something is touching your lip.
