Taste confusion/distortion?

Hi all - I'm experiencing a new symptom that's sort of weird, and so want to see if any of you have experienced it. Some of the things that I eat or drink taste wrong - when I ate cinnamon, it tasted like chili pepper, and when I drank sparkling water today, it tasted like perfume. I think this is probably a new aura symptom, but it's really weird so wanted to check with everyone here!

  1. Hi headcase1234,

    Some people do experience the symptoms you mention. Here is an answer from our migraine specialist Dr. Hutchinson; https://migraine.com/blog/experiencing-smells-taste-prior-to-migraine/.

    It's important to let our doctor know any time we have new and/or different symptoms to make sure everything checks out.
