Why does my mouth feels weird?

I recently quit using Snus. I have been chewing a lot of gum- mostly cinnamon and mint. Why is my mouth so weird and fuzzy and why can't I taste anything?

I had used about a pack of Snus a day for around 4 years. I haven't changed anything about my diet, I haven't eaten a ton of scalding soups. I am drinking less beer (because I don't need one with the Snus!) but I'm drinking the same amount of water and tea and such.
My mouth is fuzzy, my tongue calls...attention to itself and I end up scraping my teeth/chewing on it. I cannot taste things as well as I could before I quit the Snus.
On Friday I chewed through an entire pack of Cinnamon gum. I think the gum burned off my tastebuds, but I can't tell what's a normal reaction to too much cinnamon gum and what's part the process of quitting Snus and obsessing over what my mouth feels like.
