Hi felis02,

Have you seen your primary care physician or an ENT (ear, nose, and throat doctor) about your symptoms? He/She would be best able to diagnose what is happening. It is possible that your stress levels are what is causing your taste bud problems, but you should have a medical professional take a look to rule out anything that may need attention. Is this an ongoing problem or have you just started to get these symptoms? Have you eaten a lot of spicy or salty foods lately?

The most common cause of swollen taste buds is something that you have eaten like hot spicy foods that have irritated your tongue. Sometimes salty foods like chips dry the tongue and irritate the individual taste buds. For immediate relief, try ice cubes. Consult your doctor if it persists.
