Question: SWEET MOUTH TASTE
- Wed Feb 23, 2005 5:20 am
Few days ago I start having very sweet taste in my mouth. I don't feel sick or anything.
I am 112pounds,
eat1200calorie and drink 64 onces water a day.
The only think I did, I was taking few days ago couple celebrex pills for my right arm pain.
Also I like to mention that for a month I was having 6to 8 cloves of garlic with every dinner meal.
Can any of those things be the problem?Please let me know what to do. I am concern.

Celebrex nor garlic probably should not leave a sweet taste in your mouth. With the absence of any infection, do you have a fruity breath odor? Have you had any excessive thirst or frequent urination? Some of these symptoms may be a sign of Diabetes. In my opinion an endocrine or metabolic disorder is one of the first things I would consider with the above symptoms in the absence of any infection etc.
