the CFS/ME in the past used to mess up my sense of taste and smell at times eg I'd be eatting something and be tasting a completely different kind of food (like my brain taste/smell messages were all mixed up) eg bread may taste like pineapples, I'd also suddenly smell things which werent present (like an epileptic may before a seizure). This happened to me occassionally when the CFS/ME was very bad.
This happened on numerous occasions and in the end I stopped eating the fish that tasted that way. I figured maybe I can taste fish going off before anyone else can? Who knows!
