Metal taste

OK, this is just stupid, and there is so much pain and sad stories......I wanted to see if I can make someone laugh.

I was working in my woodshop today, and drinking a Pepsi. I told my wife that I had a really metallic taste in my mouth. I have Hemachromitosis and well as Grave's, so you all know the weird symptoms you can have. I have had strange tastes before since being diagnosed with Grave's so I thought, here we go again.

I finished my drink and it struck me what the problem was.....a dirty,metal screw had made it in my cup!

I'm such a goofball!

That is so funny!  That would happen to me:)

Iron and maybe some rust to go with it?  That makes my teeth hurt just thinking about it.

Thanks for the post. That was funny. I guess when you have this thryoid stuff going on we are all so in tune with our bodies that when things like metal taste pops up we think HMMMMMMMM Thyroid??????

Crazy stuff this thyroid is.

Glad you all had a laugh at my expense!

Had to do my "theraputic phlebotomy" (gave a unit of blood) for my HH today and my hematicrit was only 44. I guess that I can have another screw.........that doesn't sound right, does it?

Not laughing at you. With you. This is all new to me, and, as many, this is just another ailment to add to our list (hemochromatosis, that is). Remember, if we don't laugh "we'll all go insane".  I lost my insurance...and I learn from others' experiences. Thank you for sharing.
