In Reply to: metalic taste in mouth posted by Connie McFarland on September 20, 2000 at 16:20:56:
: For several weeks I have had a nasty taste in my mouth and also an upset stomach. The only way I can describe this is to say that it always tasted like the Bile in our stomach when you have thrown up and emptied your stomach completely. The taste I now have, the stomach problem is still there, but not as severe, is a strong metalic taste in my mouth that continues through the day and just makes me feel miserable. Please Help.
I know this may sound farfetched, but is there ANY possibility that someone is putting something into your food. It's rare, but not unheard of, for a disgruntled spouse or child to slowly poison people with rat poison. I would certainly go to a doctor, and at least get an Upper GI series. You drink a barium "milkshake", and it checks out your digestive system down to your duodenum. I in no way mean this to be a joke. I know that one of the symptoms of food poisoning is metallic taste in the mouth, but you would be much sicker if it was salmonella or something like that. Call your doctor!!!!
