I always thought it was my body just compensating for some of the other “missing” senses (toes, fingers at times, decreased eyesight). I smell the baseboard the minute it kicks on, the heat from the burners on the stove, a cigarette from a passing car. I thought the metal taste was part of that also. My tinnitus has “turned up” the volume since my disease started.
