Why do my taste buds hurt at the first bite of every meal?
it hasn't always happened. just started a couple years ago
The pain could be as a result of eating food that is too salty or exposure to acidic foods like grapefruit and lime. In addition, exposure to tobacco smoke, eating food that is too spicy or hot food could also be the cause.
You might have burnt them on a something, have you had anything really hot to eat/drink lately?
I dunno, I'm pretty tasteless myself.
