I were diagnosed with Motor neuron desease in April 2015
Patient :I were diagnosed with Motor neuron desease in April 2015. About two weeks before that I lost my taste for food completely.
Symptoms: Any meat, fish or chicken tastes very salty. If I lick over my lips at any stage it also tastes very salty. At this stage I can only take in milk, maise meal water and eggs. Since this week Eggs is also starting to effect me. I am loosing Weight around 1kg every 2 weeks.
Read and understood your complaints of change of taste sensation to salty as you have described in the section of symptoms.
Tongue taste sensations are conveyed by 3 different nerves, branch of facial glossopharyngeal and vagus.
These being mixed nerves may be affected in the process of motor neurone disease.
Losing weight at a rate you have written may have a reason which needs to be evaluated.
It is better to re-evaluate bladder cancer.
I hope this answer helps you. Please give further feedback so that we can discuss further...
