4. Changes in Taste
A change in taste is also a symptom of burning mouth syndrome. People who have BMS often complain of experiencing changes in the taste of food and drinks. Most of the patients describe the taste as having a bitter palate or a taste that is close to iron or blood. Some patients experience a completely different taste than normal.
In more advanced cases, sufferers tend to lose their sense of taste altogether which may then lead to other adverse effects such as loss of appetite. If you have observed a change in your palate or loss of taste, it is ideal to consult your medical provider to pinpoint the exact cause and apply proper treatment.
