My cheeks get this weird cold sensation whenever I eat cheese. Does anybody else experience this and/or know why this happens?

Asked by loser (14982points) May 5th, 2010 from iPhone

I’ve always wondered about this. I’ve had it happen all my life but have no idea why.

is it every kind of cheese?

and is it the inside or the outside of your cheeks?

The obvious question – was the cheese just taken from a refrigerator? Are you diabetic? Autonomous neuropathy can affect body temperature regulation in response to various types of food and beverage.

Every type of cheese.
It feels kind of inside and outside my cheeks.
Fresh out of the fridge or melted, doesn’t matter.
I am mildly diabetic but only for about 7 years now.

Weird, huh?

… I think that happens when I eat oranges. I would also like to know.

EDIT: Also, I am not diabetic.

Sounds like cheese poisoning to me!

My brothers used to get this reaction from eating Chinese food. Years later, it was discovered that the flavor additive MSG in Chinese food can cause this sensation. I wonder if there is something like that in your cheese.
