Problems with Taste

Frequently Asked Questions

7. How do I know if I have a problem with my sense of taste?

There are several types of taste disorders depending on how the sense of taste is affected. If you have a taste disorder, you may experience a loss in your ability to taste or changes in the way you perceive taste sensations. Or you may not be able to detect any taste at all. The most common taste complaint is called "phantom taste perception," which is tasting something when nothing is in the mouth.
