Food triggers TN?

I've noticed that some foods really seem to trigger a TN flare, does anyone else experience this? Or know if this is even possible?

I seem to be really bothered by vinegar products. Pickles, salt n vinegar chips, hot sauce etc. I've eaten and loved these foods my whole life and notice either an immediate reaction or delayed reaction lately. I believe I have MS and was in the middle of an exacerbation when I reached for salt n vinegar chips the second I put the chip on my tongue I suffered from immediate, intense TN pain. This has since been common and all these types of food bother me causing either mild or severe reaction.

Am I crazy or is there a connection?

I also notice these foods smell very offensive, feels like my nose hairs are curling and I need to sneeze, and taste sort of "off".

Any input?
