Irritable sensation on the tongue. Poor perception of smell and taste. Had gene testing for IBS. Diagnosed with coeliac predisposition. Are these related?
According to the symptoms told by you one possibility is Myasthenia gravis.
The reasons to think so are,
1. You are having celiac predisposition, both myasthenia and celiac disease are autoimmune diseases. And celiac disease is having the property of leading to other autoimmune diseases by gut leaking mechanism.
2. One more thing you told your symptoms are getting worse when the day progresses, it is known in myasthenia as symptoms became worse with increasing activity and decreases with rest.
3. Your decreased taste could be attributed to difficulty of chewing noticed in myasthenia.
By mouth wash these symptoms will not go, now what you have to do is consult local neurologist and undergo tests like blood test for acetylcholine receptor antibodies, edrophonium test, Electromyography (EMG), Computed tomography (CT) etc depending on his advice.
Don’t worry with treatment most of the cases will be completely cured.
