I was wondering about thyroid symptoms. Does anyone have a salt symptom that is known to be a thyroid problem? I have become so sensitive to salt. It makes me sick to my stomach and gives me a headache. almost everything I eat tastes like it has been drenched in it. I have to wash it first and after I cook it it still tastes salty.
So, could this be a thyroid issue or have I just become real sensitive to it?

i dont know- but very interested. the only thing i know about salt and thyroid is that a BIG SALT CRAVING can be indicative of Hypothyroid.

Sorry I have more questions than answers...could be a lot of things.

Have you ever been checked for Sjogren's? That family of things (lupus, sjogren's, rheumatoid arthritis) can possibly contribute according to this article from the Mayo Clinic.

GERD, Pituitary problem, lots of things. Are you using a mouthwash or tooth whitener that you weren't using before this started?

Are you sure you are drinking plenty of water? Dehydration can cause it. Do you think your thyroid is adequately treated? Thyroid is so often under-treated!

How is your blood pressure? Hypertension can also cause this.

Have you talked to your doctor about it?

best,

Before I was diagnosed with Hashi's I thought I was going to die after eating what tasted like pure salt shrimp. I felt like I couldn't drink enough water to get the salt taste out of my mouth. My face and neck felt like it was puffing. Not hot, like an allergic reaction. (It really did puff as that is one of the symptoms of Hashi's.)

Get checked out by a doctor asap. I know exactly how miserable salt can make you feel.
