Hi people. This goes out to those who have digestive diseases/disorders who have been hospitalized for a long time: Has anyone experienced a "burning" feeling in your mouth when you eat food? It doesn't feel like an allergy. More like my brain is saying "this food is spicy". Keep in mind, I had to recover from a pancreatitis flair and couldn't eat ANYTHING for 1/2 a month while I was in the hospital and had to slowly re-introduce food back into my life. I've been fine for a while, but all of a sudden it's like the textures of the foods are unknown to me. Thoughts would be appreciated.

    This happened to me after being in the hospital for pancreatitis requiring surgery. I hadn’t eaten In three weeks, similar to you. It took SIX weeks for that sensation to disappear. My doctors weren’t sure as to what caused it. I could tolerate only very mild textures and lost a significant amount of weight. I wish I had better news but you’re not alone in this. Best of luck!

    I’m not familiar with the burning sensation you’ve described, but because of the long time of fasting it took a few months for me to recognize again the textures and flavours of many types of food

    I have had major issues with food textures since being diagnosed with pancreatitis. I have given up so many foods at this point and ways of cooking food. The biggest being microwaved. I am currently managing my pancreatitis through diet and have had more luck than the medication and absence of food. Very small meals every two hours has been the magic for me.
