Hi... When I eat celery (say, about 2 sticks of standard celery-stick length, if I may use that measure) my tongue gets quite numb. I have recently found out that this also happens to my mum. No one else has ever heard of this, and thinks I'm fairly insane. I'm in Molecular Biology & Biochemistry (3rd year) so I'd appreciate some guidance to a source where I might find some recepter/ligand actions to explain this odd relationship that my tongue seems to have with celery. Thanking you very much in advance. :)
