Hello my fellow crohnsters. I'll make this brief and to the point. I been on Remicade for about 8 months and in that treatment phase I would get infections inide mouth and all around my tongue (part of the compromised immunity).
Well one day the infection came back, but with a vengeance and left and an indellible impression. I couldn't taste my
food. I had simply lost the ability to discern flavors. This occurred 3 months ago and had not corrected. Since then I've lost 30 pounds and my appetite has been suppressed due to the inability or damaged taste buds.
Now my concern is; could my taste buds be permanently neurologically damaged or this will heal out in time, and
in the meantime I've made apppointment to see a specialist. The only thing I can taste is hot/cold food, but the flavor
is still compromised. Has anyone gone through this?
