I have always had a sensitive tongue. I like to flatten soda and find carbonated drinks rather disgusting.
Spicy food has alway been very painful to my tongue. To put it lightly, I would honestly rather drink a glass of urine then eat most spicy stuff. I always thought it was just my taste since most people seemed to enjoy spicy food. Anyway, then I saw this video where this junk food maker (I will not advertise spicy food) was talking about how his chips made your tongue feel like a hammer was taken to it. This is kinda what my experience has been.
So my question is, is it true that a lot of people feel pain when they eat spicy food or is it a rare condition? And if it does sting a lot of people, then why would said people willingly eat it? Lend me your tongue.
