For the past few days my sense of taste has been SUPER strong.
Everything either tastes really salty or really sweet.
I’m also feeling incredibly thirsty.
I’ve taken a pregnancy test which was negative.
Has anyone got any ideas? I’ll make an appointment with the Dr tomorrow but im missing food!

Are you on any new medication? Years and years ago, I found a couple of medications drastically altered my sense of taste. In my case, they were sleeping pills/muscle relaxers like Lunesta.

Are you on meds? I’m taking some heavy duty ones for an autimmune disorder and have been losing my taste for things at an alarming rate. I could be half finished with something, decide it tastes gross and throw the stuff away. Which makes my family crazy they accuse me of wasting food. My dr. said it could happen and it sure did.
Check with your dr.

Since meds has already been talked about, have you changed your diet at all recently? I know for some people, if they switched from eating really salty or sweet junk food (such as potato chips and really sweet candy) to eating really clean and healthy (such as unsalted nuts and green apples) for a long time, going back to eating something in between, such as healthy pop microwave popcorn or frozen yogurt, the food will taste really strong if you have been eating more mild flavors.
As for the thirst, I could see that being a large indicator that something isn’t right if you are drinking enough water each day.

My diet has been great for the past 6 months or so, prior to that was a junk food addict.
I’m currently taking accutane and have been for almost 8 months which gives me random side effects here and there.

Do you take any supplements/vitamins etc? If so, have you changed the dosage or types?
