    Sometimes when I'm in a crash (either due to overexertion, or to a different, unidentified factor), I experience an unpleasant taste in my mouth. This makes water taste rather unpleasant. It's weird. Does anyone else get this?

    @Sarah94 - I don't know if you get bloating or burping, but I associate the bad taste with acid reflux from your stomach ( due to lying down).

    It's not acid reflux. I have experience with that, and this is different. Thanks though.

    My sense of taste often changes when I start to crash.

    I wouldn't describe it as a taste in itself, it's just that almost everything I eat and drink doesn't taste 'right' (and generally tastes 'orrible).

    I sometimes smell burning when there isn’t anything burning when I’m feeling bad.

    Daughter has commented re metallic taste / edge.

    Could it be hormonal signalling ? ( taste changes too at puberty and pregnancy)

    I don't know whether mine is metallic.

    I don't know why people describe tastes as metallic. I don't eat metal and I don't think anyone else does either. (This might be my autism literal thinking at work?)

    My sense of smell, not taste has been altered with ME. Lots of things used to smell metallic - even flowers.

    I do smell burning or other odds smells when there seems to be nothing that could cause that smell.

    Can't recall if my sense of taste has been altered. I don't think so.

    I just asked my wife if she ever got a strange taste in her mouth and she said "Oh yes, I get that whenever I'm completely out of energy, along with the indigestion and feeling sick". I knew of all the other stuff but the taste I was unaware of. But my wife didn't have to think about it for a moment.

    yes weird taste & phantom smells...

    smells - things smell like cat faeces or cat urine, or cigarette smoke.

    taste - yes metallic
    It is literal for me, it tastes like if you use cutlery that is steel but silver plated & they're old, the silver plate starts to wear off & the unpolished steel has a taste.
    Blood does taste metallic , I usually check my gums when it happens because it will taste the same if your gums are bleeding, but they never are it's just the taste.

    I get it too. The mouth feels very dry with it. I up the water intake in case it is also drying me out elsewhere in the body. It does feel that it could be affecting tissue everywhere (?).
