Hi -- Has anyone had a metallic or unpleasant taste in your mouth? For three days now I have. It reminds me of how it is with certain medications, but I am not on anything. Could it be a build up of something from the diet? Everything tastes awful now, so my appetite has gone away, even for the yummy, kind foods! Thanks for any help.
That doesn't sound right. I thankfully never experienced it.
You may have to try taking one thing out that you were eating at a time to figure out what is causing that sensation. Good Luck
I experienced this one time when I started to take prenatal (spelling?) vitamins. I was taking the vitamin for issues other than preparing for pregnancy. I was only on them for about two weeks, and I had the same taste that you are describing. It was awful. I believe it was too much iron.
Thanks for the responses. It does take a little detective work, doesn't it? I never did enjoy coke or soda, so that is not it, but good thought. Looking back over the last couple of days I realize I did not enjoy my steamed kale as much as usual -- It tasted metallic. I took another bite of the leftovers and it was unappealing. This may be it. Otherwise, I did just try a new brand name in the CoQ10 and EPOil I am prescribed, so I am off these two as well as the kale for a few days to see if it improves. It is strange to imagine something so healthy can be bad, but maybe I got a touch of salmonella from the kale or some other food poisoning. I guess I will stick to collards -- I like 'em better anyway! Thanks for the input and let me know if you have any other ideas as I am figuring this out.
I have been vegan for 5 days now and YES! I have had this. I did get a bit of a cold a few days ago so I thought it was this, I also made one of the recipes from the book called sicilian
there's something called 'pine mouth' that happens when pine nuts have gone bad, or sometimes from chinese pine nuts. if you ate them recently, i would bet on that. it will go away in 5-ish days. if this is what it is, throw out your pine nuts and keep the next batch in fridge or freezer.
(sorry about the terrible typing. nursing baby = left-handed typing)
Great! The day before I noticed this I made a fabulous sicilian collard w/ pine nuts too. They tasted fine, but it is worth tossing the scant amount in the old bag and keeping the new one in the fridge. And bless you for left-handed typing and nursing! Best thing for your baby and you! I nursed my girl for 18 months -- 12 years ago. She's got the best immune system in the family! Thanks for the help. I knew I would find the answer here.
Definitely the pine nuts!
