Candyfluff - I have had this since Tuesday and from looking on here and google I have concluded it is from pine nuts,I just want to know how much longer I am going to have it.

candyfluff Sat 10-Oct-09 16:53:47

pine nut ???? no i dont eat them ,i do take an antidepressent late at night but have been on them for nearly a year so shouldnt think its that ,it tastes horrible its driving me nuts to be honest.
im gonna get some mouthwash tomorrow and see if it helps failing that may have to visit the dentist or doctors - not sure who would be the best for this one .any opinions

southeastastra Sat 10-Oct-09 22:03:52

I once had a HORRENDOUS bad taste in my mouth
I could not eat anything with dairy in it, nothing at all, it tasted FOUL
It went round all out friends (NOT passed on by me!!)
The dentist said it was herpetic shock but we'd all had coldsores so we discounted that and figured it was a virus.

prunerz herpes is a virus , same one that causes cold sores

RoseBlossoms Sat 10-Oct-09 22:19:26

I'm really sorry but "sour/metallic taste " was excatly what i had one week before my af due, that never arrived i'm now 22 weeks pregnant. Just IME.

If there is a chance i'd test.

PumpkinsCantDanceTheTango Sun 11-Oct-09 05:30:44

Only ever had that when preg or on zopiclone sleeping tabs. So going by my experience if you aint on the tabs then test! wink But am sure there are more reasons...

Prunerz Sun 11-Oct-09 07:00:37

yy I know, I meant 'another virus'. Rather than herpes, which we all already had as coldsores.
Anyway it was vile, we couldn't eat, everything tasted so awful.

candyfluff Sun 11-Oct-09 15:59:31

do have lots of fillings yes why?

candyfluff Sun 11-Oct-09 16:01:28

you got me thinking im pregnant now - gonna get a cheap test and do one

RoseBlossoms Mon 12-Oct-09 21:15:50

So to be nosey are we expecting a baby fluff?


ADragonIs4LifeNotJustHalloween Mon 12-Oct-09 21:17:42

"pregnant" was my guess too

IdrisTheDragon Mon 12-Oct-09 21:22:27

I had that a few months ago.

I wasn't pregnant grin.

I do take ADs and have many fillings so maybe it was due to one or other of them. It went away again anyway. Not that that is much help to you but it doesn't necessarily mean pregnancy.

IdrisTheDragon Mon 12-Oct-09 21:24:41

Cctually thinking about it, I hadn't been eating much in the way of carbohydrates and after I ate pasta cheese one evening it did start getting better. I think I had googled and found ketosis as one possible reason.

busybutterfly Mon 12-Oct-09 23:04:39

I get this when I'm due on - so it maybe the opposite of being pregnant!!

candyfluff Tue 13-Oct-09 07:52:30

am due on so maybe ,havent done a test thought id wait and see !

TheFoosa Tue 13-Oct-09 08:20:23

tonsil stones?

saramoon Tue 13-Oct-09 20:54:49

I got this when i was pregnant with both off my dds BUT recently i have been having a weird metallic taste in my mouth a few days before i am due on. Puts the fear of God in me that i have one in the oven again.

candyfluff Wed 14-Oct-09 16:10:43

well its been over a week and no signs of the gross taste going away
