Is it likely that post nasal drip could affect the sense of taste? Thank you.

Posted by

I have post nasal drip which I haven't started treating yet since I just recognized it as a problem.   I also just started to notice that  foods no longer taste good.  The best way I can describe the taste is to say that foods taste basic (as opposed to acidic).     I realize that anything is possible but is it likely that the taste of the mucus is killing the taste of food?   Thank you.
