Ever hear something so clearly you could taste it? Well one women could.

A curious report found in the British paper, The Sun, features a woman who could only taste words, smell sounds, and was cured after being struck by lightning, only for her curious symptoms to later return.
The woman, who wasn't identified, suffers from Synaesthesia, which is the ability to taste words, hear colors and sense auras around people. Researchers don't have a firm grasp on what causes the strange condition.
Trinity College Dublin researchers are highlighting this woman's case to see if the extra publicity may lead to a new way of treating the condition.
According to the paper, the patient has been able to hear colors since birth. As an example researchers said high-pitched notes appeared pastel.
They said that after she was struck by lightning and began taking pills for migraines, the symptoms disappeared, which leads them to believe that the issues are more deeply wired into people's brains than previously thought.
