I am 3 and half months post radiation and in the past week my taste buds have gone nuts, all i can taste is salt i don't need to add salt to anything which i never did, but everything is really salty even tea tastes salty, is there something i can take to make my saliva not so salty, if anyone knows please it is driving me nuts.

Unfortunately I have no useful information whatsoever. But just wanted to respond so that you know that there are people out here reading your blog, and caring And for no good reason whatsoever I would try chocolate or ice cream - just because they are nice and worth a try Gail
