Troubles with eating.

Postby jcoleman316 » Wed Mar 12, 2014 11:39 am

Hi all, I have a an issue that I'm not totally sure is related to Ms or not. I've always been a picky eater. I've never cared for certain foods like sharp cheeses for the taste or bell peppers because of the texture. Many other foods I just can't stand and it drives my wife crazy. I could even be eating something like steak or ice cream and it will be obviously good, but half way through it just turns and starts to make my stomach turn and I can't finish it. Since my MS diagnosis and symptoms it has even became worse. Does anyone else have weird issues like this? I'm in between ms therapies and not on steroids. Haven't had the flu or anything that can change my taste, other than quitting smoking a year and a half ago. Hopefully I'm not the only person with eating issues, so I can tell my wife I don't have an eating disorder!

jcoleman316 I admire your praising of your wife in your signature!

I have not had taste issues, but I do know that having not enough zinc is a cause of taste and smell problems- reduced taste and smell AND distorted taste/smell.
