Well, this is a new one on me. The taste buds in/on my tongue don't work anymore. Got a clue when half a bottle of lite salt on noodles produced nothing. Looked it up and there seems to be a few names for it, and all of the descriptions say they will return. It is just a very strange feeling and lack of sensation. Been trying all sorts of food to see how bad it is, and I found out, not bad enough to eat okra.
