The Cause Of The Sense Of Taste Feels More Sensitive When The Flu Healing Conditions?
Night doctor. My age is 29. Why does every meal taste too much? For example, when I eat sweet cakes, they taste very sweet, I eat chicken in a slightly sweet and spicy sauce. My health condition is in the stage of healing from the flu. What is the influence of the drug or from the disease. Please answer. Thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition of someone who has the flu, the sense of taste should actually become increasingly obtuse. Because to be able to feel our food does not rely entirely on the tongue, we also need help from the sense of smell or nose. So that if someone has the flu and his nose is blocked, the ability to distinguish it seems to decrease.
Therefore, your present condition may or may not be normal. You could say normal because each person does have a different sensitivity to taste. Some are easy to feel spicy and some are not. There are those who add a little salt to feel salty and some feel it is still lacking even though it is a lot. All this is normal, because of differences in appetite for each person.
If due to disease, then this has to do with certain neurological disorders, both nerves on the tongue or on the brain. To ensure this condition, you should check yourself with a neurologist so that later you can do a further examination of yourself. The handling you will receive later depends on the results of this inspection.
Meanwhile, if you can still adapt to the taste, for example by reducing consumption of sweet and spicy foods, and reducing any additional seasonings that cause excessive taste in your opinion, there is no need to rush to the doctor. Avoid cigarettes, do not consume drugs without doctor's advice and check yourself immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
