From early September through mid November, I was unable to taste and I had a slight numbness throughout my entire body. One day I woke up with a numbness in my mouth. By afternoon, it had spread throughout my body. It was not a tingling feeling, but like my skin was a little less sensitive. A doctor poked my skin in various places, and I was able to feel them all. If I pinched my skin, though, I couldn't feel the pain. I could not taste at all, but I could smell fine.
In mid November, the taste came back and the numbness went away. I feel completely fine.
Does anyone have any idea why I couldn't taste for 2 and a half months? The only medication I take is for hypothyroidism (synthyroid), but my doctors say everything is fine with my thyroid levels right now.
I'm 28 years old and don't have a history of any serious illnesses
