Few days ago I start having very sweet taste in my mouth. I don't feel sick or anything. I am 112pounds, 5'3'',exercise, 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. Thank you.

Hi mhaelal,
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.
