Why do I have this bad after taste after everything I eat?

Why do I have this bad after taste after everything I eat?

Taste: Is influenced by zinc in the diet. Its deficiency usually causes loss of taste but I suppose that it might be your problem. Try a zinc supplement----------it can't do harm in a health food dose although taking too much will cause copper deficiency.

Is it bad to eat something that has been in contact with orange peel as it tasted like orange peel. I did not wash the peel.

Is it bad to eat something that has been in contact with orange peel as it tasted like orange peel. I did not wash the peel.

Nothing to worry: Food in contact with orange peel may get some of its taste rubbed off on the food but it shd not be harmful at all unless u kept it out & peel were rotting. Even then under clean household conditions it shd not cause any harm. If u r allergic to anything orange it may cause a reactIion. If any symptoms of nausea, vomiting or abdominal pain develop have urself chk'd &do not worry in the meantime.

Had laparoscopic gb surgery 2 weeks ago gb was gangrene. Strong antibodics in icu. Home now can't eat everything has bad odor and taste. Help?

Time: It is not uncommon after being ill with major surgery & extensive antibiotics to get tired easoly & have a lack of appetite. Also some antibiotics, especially flagyl, can cause a bad taste in the mouth & make food taste badly. Time for healing & getting off antibiotics will help. Have your doctor look for oral thrush, irritated tongue, at your next visit too.

I am 3 months pregnant, every time I eat anything sweet I have a bad lingering weird taste I my mouth. What is that?

See below: Taste buds seem to change in early pregnancy making things we normally love taste bad and things we normally don't like taste fine. This is normal in early pregnancy and usually gets better by itself.

Acid Reflux: Most likely you have acid reflux;. Eat less and early before bed, at lease 3 hrs before. Start nexium (esomeprazole) over the counter and see your Doctor. Avoid spicy and fried food

Hello: Hello I can't diagnose your condition. You may have a viral upper respiratory infection. This is suggested by fever, cough, headache and sore throat. If you temp reaches 104 or more, you should be medically evaluated or if your fevers last more than a week. You can take an non-steroidal anti-inflammatory to help reduce your fever and to help your headaches and general soreness. If you have predominantly sore throat; you should get a streph throat test. In the mean time consider gargling with warm salt water several times a day. Hydrate really well with water so that you can keep the mucus moist, so that it can be coughed out. If you develop difficulty breathing you should get medical care.

I got dry mouth and a bad taste. I'm shaky and waek and can not eat. Dye mouth and bad taste in my mouth. Weak and shaky. Can not eat?

New Meds?: This symptom is very common, and is often seen as a side effect of many types of medication. Dehydration, radiotherapy involving the salivary glands and several diseases can cause change in saliva consistency and hence a complaint of xerostomia (dry mouth). Sometimes there is no identifiable cause...Certainly see your physician asap!

Cant eat properly, feel full after small amount. Bad bitter taste in morning, queasy stomache, block feeling in throat. What could it be?

Cant eat properly, feel full after small amount. Bad bitter taste in morning, queasy stomache, block feeling in throat. What could it be?

Could be reflux: If it's associated with sleep, then there's possibly a small amount of stomach contents going back into the throat due to gravity. Even a very small amount of reflux could give a strange taste in the mouth. Reflux can cause the blocked feeling in the throat. Stomach ulcers can cause you to feel full after eating a small amount. Make sure you get checked up by your doc for this!

Every time I eat I have a real bad taste in my mouth. I presently take prescribe acid reflex pills without any change. I have had a x-ray, ultra sound?

Bad taste: Look at your tongue in the mirror. If it is any color but pink (i.e., white, green, yellow or black coating) then you might have a condition called thrush that needs treating. You would need to see your family doctor to get the medicine that treats the condition. The bad taste usually resolves in 3-10 days.

I feel some sticky substance in my mouth when I don't eat, bitter taste in mouth, hot air frm mouth, blackening n yellowing of teeth. Sign of bad breath?

Bad breath plus: You sound dehydrated because your saliva is thick n sticky. The bitterness is from electrolyte imbalance from lack of fluids n nutrition. The black is decay and tarter. You probably have bloody toothbrush and mooith full of blood when you do brush. The yellow is the layers of plaque fromo inadequate and infrequent brushing. All that I've just listed will cause overwhelming bad breath!

Gums, tongue, and throat hurt so much that I can barely eat. Gums bleed, bad taste in throat, sores. I haven't been to the dentist in a long time.

See someone ASAP: Could be anything, you need a good oral and perhaps complete physical exam. Any recently started medications? Any recent trips to foreign countries? On any antibiotics? Tried and new foods recently?

How can I get rid of the bad taste in my mouth after my wisdom teeth surgery? I rinse with salt water after I eat

Bad taste: . Do you have pain? Swelling? Stitches? Keep rinsing with salt water. Did the oral surgeon give you a syringe to irrigate the area with? Sometimes there is an unpleasant taste because of the healing process going on. Sometimes it can be from food debris stick in the hole. See the extracting dentist about this. It is the best way to get an answer.

Lately everything I eat tastes like metal what could be the cause of that?

Lately everything I eat tastes like metal what could be the cause of that?

Are you on any Meds?: Most times, metalic taste in the mouth is a symptom of some underlying condition. The commonest causes are if you are on certain drugs, an example is Metronidazole and other nitroimidazoles used to treat yeast infection. Other causes may be antihistamines, or drugs used for high blood pressure which could cause mouth dryness that compromises your sense of taste. See your doctor to be sure.
