  • This is a condition that's been going on for five years. If I were to bite into a piece of cake or candy, it would taste bitter.Anything you can think of that is generally sweet, including fruit, tastes bitter. Meals lack the flavor that they should have.When I eat chicken soup for instance, If I don't add a bouillion cube to it, the soup would be tasteless.If you have any knowledge concerning this condition, please contact me. Five years is a long time to deal with this.
