good evening!

i have the same problem. i have always been very particular about my coffee - it has to be just right. recently i have had to use twice as much instant in each mug. everything tastes blander than it used to.

i blame my medication. taste sensation is conducted by nerves to the brain, i think, :dunno: and drugs like lyrica and gabapentin suppress nerve conduction. therefore my pseudo science says i need my coffee twice as strong.

Hi
Same here, taste buds all over the place, they have been for a long time now, i blame it on fibro and the meds. :(

afternoon all

Had a drs appt this morn and explained the lack of taste of foods and the metalic feeling i have in my mouth. Thank god he knows about fibro otherwise i would have looked a bit :crazy:
He totally agrees with u all who posted, that its a common complaint from people with fibro and also it could b a side affect from diff tabs that we take.
Hope that all who have looked in on this topic are coping with their pain levels and have a good day :hugs:
