All the pacer does is raise your heart rate, it can't affect your sense of taste. Have you had a covid test?

Enjoying food

Hi Holly - these are very stressful times, especially for you with your new device...has perhaps your access to the foods you would normally eat changed in any way?

A few questions

Hello Holly,

Have your changed your medication lately ?  Some meds can cause an unpleasant taste in the mouth.

Do you have healthy teeth because dental decay can cause food to taste badly.   

Do you have Coronavirus?  I had symptoms of Coronavirus in April and Coronavirus can really mess with our taste buds.  I certainly had trouble cooking with Coronavirus and only wanted to stay in bed.  Have you got a temperature?

If you are really poorly, I suggest you speak to your general doctor who might be able to do some blood checks, just in case you have an infection or another medical condition causing your symptoms and malaise.

And finally, perhaps the food you are cooking is bad ?  I don't know what else to suggest.  I hope you will soon be enjoying your cooking and food again.  Food really is one of the pleasures of life.

Happened to me too after my icd was installed. Didn’t taste bad exactly but less good. But it got better. 

You know you're wired when...

You prefer rechargeable batteries.
