    "Both the development and maintenance of taste buds is dependent on nerve innervation. If the nerve innervating taste buds is cut, the taste buds degenerate, and do not reappear until the nerve reinnervates the tissue. It is not know how the nerve activates taste bud formation, and only specific nerves will regenerate taste buds. Cells within the taste bud have a limited life span of approximately ten days to two weeks. Therefore, new taste cells must continually differentiate to replace dying taste cells, and cells at a variety of different developmental stages are present within a single taste bud. In consequence, the synapses between taste receptor cells and nerves must constantly be remodeled. Several morphologically distinct cells can be distinguished within a single taste bud; these different cell types may represent different stages in the development of a taste cell."

    Many thanks, Karen. That's great info. Food tastes just fine though and that's what a lot of folks are saying in those threads so my taste buds aren't totally compromised. I just can't taste the eliquids. Actually they do have some flavor but they all taste the same...kinda like chewing on a cottonball...bleh Guess I'm gonna have to set down the REO for a while. This is gonna be tough!!

    When I switched to the REO from the KR808 I found that my juices did not have that same taste. I had been using just cartomizers. Then I was using atty's on the REO. All my juice has always been 100% VG. I know it is said that it will cut the flavor.
    What I found that worked was making my own juice. I found that 20% flavor would come through just wonderful in the attys.

    Jeff, the only other thing I can suggest now is to take a sip of a drink right before you vape. It might at least relieve the cotton mouth feeling. If you have any vanilla or another liquid flavor you could put a little of that in your juice.

    Thanks again, Karen! I very much appreciate your input!

    I was wondering if VG might be part of it and I think you've put that worry to rest. It's not the dryness of a cotton ball that I was referring to, it's the taste of a cotton ball!...LOL I think I've just over done it. I've had a REO for what? One week? I've been pounding this puppy and I think I just need to back off some. At least, I hope so!

    I know with atomizers I loose the flavor and just taste atty after just a few hours. If I throw a clean one it it tastes great again for a few more hours. Thats one of the reasons I like cartomizers more now, I can go a few days on not loose the flavor.

    I would say try a fresh atty or carto and a different flavor.

    Another thing you can do while your taste buds are recovering is to vape some good menthol flavored juice. This will help you out until they heal. Or you can vape some cinnamon juice as well if you don't like menthol.

    Thanks all! I can taste a wee hint of flavor this morning. Maybe a new crop of taste buds is growing so that I can slay them once again. :D
