Re: why cant I taste food

I don't know. Do you have a cold? Did you used to be able to taste food? Did the ability go away suddenly, or gradually? Why do you think it might have happened?

Re: why cant I taste food

Cold/sinus/ear infection, certain medications can cause taste loss, nerve damage (temporary and permanent), certain vitamin deficiencies, mouth bacteria and tooth infections are some causes. My husband loss his taste for a few months and was attributed to his MS. However, he also has horrible sinus problems too.

Re: why can't I taste food?

My roommate had sinus surgery in middle school. Prior to that, she couldn't taste food; not once in her life.

If that sounds like you, go see a doctor.
