Taste Buds Not Working?

Answer

Your taste buds can stop working for a period of time. This mostly comes when your sinuses are blocked. Your sense of smell accompanies your sense of taste. If you have a cold or the flu, the illness is likely to damage these senses. Once your symptoms are gone, your taste buds will revive themselves and your sense of smell will return. If you are not sick and have this problem, it is best to seek the assistance of your family doctor. Nerve damage may be an issue in which the sensory aspects of the taste buds are not working as they should.
