No sensations at all

Has anyone experienced loss of sensations? I have lost 50 lbs because I get no satisfaction from any food. I cannot get that “good” feeling when my back or feet are rubbed or tickled. Bought a new car thinking I would get that new car excitement, but I didn’t. I also got a new cell phone thinking that would be exciting, but it wasn’t. I can remember the good taste food should have. I cook it and I might as well be eating a rock. Has anyone else experienced this?! All I can find on sensations is burning, itching, crawling or pain. But this is totally different. Thanks, Holli

    I lost my sense of smell and taste after a very bad cold over three years ago except for the tongue taste, so I to oversell things and use a lot of Stevia to make things Sweet. I did however start to get those sensations back, slowly. At first when I started to regain smell and taste,I couldn’t necessarily hold onto a taste once I started eating it. It is getting slightly better with time. But I have little desire are you here later or so to enjoy food like I used to. I had lost weight Who is before on a low carbohydrate diet but the issue of eating did not come up till after I lost taste and smell. Although I am up a few pounds, and I still can’t exactly explain it because my eating habits have not changed, and my clothes still fit after taking them in. I really do not eat all that much.,
