For two months (Sept-Oct), I was unable to taste anything and I had a slight numb feeling thoroughout my entire body (I could still feel - but all sensation was dimished). During this time, I made an appointment with a neurologist (after seeing an internist and doing lots of tests... she just thought it was anxiety even though I wasn't feeling anxiety). The neurology appointment is not for another month. My taste came back in early November and the numbness went away completely.
Has anyone heard of this happening? I was worried it might be MS or a tumor, as sometimes the inability to taste can be a symptom of these. But I have no other reason to think it is these.
Now that I am feeling 100% better, I am leaning toward not going to the neurologist, especially since my internist wasn't helpful and didn't think I needed to go even when I was experiencing these symptoms. Does anyone have any idea why my taste went away for two months? I hope it's not MS, but like I said I don't really have a strong reason to think it is.
I doubt the neurologist can help. He'll just say it was anxiety, too.
