From September through mid-November, I could not taste any food and I have a slight numbness throughout my entire body.  In mid-November, the taste came back and the numbness went away.  Could this be a sign of MS?  I honestly have no idea what it could be.
I have a doctors appointment, but it will be a long time before I can get in.
I don't take any medications, and I eat healthy and take care of myself.
Very odd symptom...

None of us in here are doctors so you won't get a diagnosis. There are many ailments that have symptoms similar to MS. That said, the symptoms you describe could be MS related. I've had full body numbness ever since my last relapse in March 11. I have never been unable to taste but the way many foods tasted to me before has definitely changed since March too. Like Gretchen (a frequent poster here) always says, make sure you have good health insurance BEFORE you see your doctor as MS is very expensive to treat. My meds alone cost over $ 4,000 per month and that does not include doctor visits.

Good luck,
