Yes, I do smoke. Some of my friends suggest I quit smoking a couple of weeks, to see if it
improves my taste. Now I think I will take them up on their suggestion.
Yes, I have followed up with my doctor, the nose, ear, throat specialist recommends I see
a neurologist, my doctor has no clue to my problem.

Well it could be a sinus infection
And if u have ur tounge peirced that will kill  ur taste buds
Smoking can ruion ur sensation for taste n smell
I'd wait on the Neurologist  this really doesnt seem to be a neurological problem
Try an Allerigest
