Do i need to see a doctor?
For about three weeks or so now, I have been having a problem with my nose and my taste. My microwave smells like rat poison, my favorite foods taste like poison, I can hardly eat anything because it tastes so terrible. I take lithium, tramadol, and klonopin regularly. also on ocassion i take otc stomach acid medicine. I havent been to the dentist to ensure that its not my teeth, but my teeth dont hurt. I am not sick. No nose problems, sometimes my chest hurts but i think its from stomach acid or something. The smell is not foul nor metallic, and it seems way back in my nose or something, its just bad enough to prevent eating properly. please help me...
oh i have been on the lithium 5 weeks
tramadol 2 years
and klonopin about a year.

It's the lithium. I'm not a doctor or anything but I had a very similar problem. It wasn't smell just taste. Everything tasted kind of weird and metallic to me when I was on Lithium. ESPECIALLY dairy products. It went away when I stopped taking it. I don't know if it would have gone  away eventually if I kept taking it or not. The psychiatrist took me off of it because the taste was so bad that I wasn't eating. I'd tell your psychiatrist and see what they say.
