I've been on Buhner's protocol and have lost my sense of taste, not completely but nothing taste right or good. Water seems to even taste wrong and has the feeling of caster oil. I do have sinus congestion and ear pain/pressure which I've read can cause this. I also think I have post nasal drip while sleeping. This has never happened to me before even though I have had the sinus and ear problems before.
2001 symptoms started:
Tingling in fingers and toes both sides, not tested at that time for LD
2007 Summer tested pos. WB, diagnosed with LD, tested neg for co-infections thru Igenex
Abx - Doxy 100mg 2x/day for 3 weeks (before diagnosis)
Amoxicillin 1gm 2x/day for 1 month
Amoxicillin 1gm 3x/day with Probenecid 500mg 2x/day 5 months
Currently on Dr. Zhang's protocol stopped Zhang's after 6 months symptoms returned. Started Buhner's protocol May 2009
