I'm getting some weird symptoms and wonder if they're related to a nutrition deficiency.
I've got a strong burning sensation in my nose which is very annoying. If I open my mouth, I can feel the burn in the front of my teeth and tongue. This has been going on over a year.
Lately, I've been experiencing another odd symptom. Sometimes when I eat or drink certain foods, I get this strange, pungent taste. Kind of like horseradish, cilantro and ammonia mixed together. Has happened while eating: salad, cole slaw, clam chowder, chocolate and enchiladas. (Not every time, though). Once while drinking strong coffee and eating a scone. The strange smell problem I've noticed while urinating, and occasionally taste it in my mouth. Like roast beef gravy and ashes...yuck!
I've had lab work done a few months ago and all was fairly normal. I'm overweight but active, and my cholesterol is a bit high but not extreme. I have acid reflux/GERD but have been on Pepcid for a long time.
I'm nearly 47 and am pretty sure I'm perimenopausal. Have had some hot flashes and my periods are getting to be abnormal. Currently I'm a week overdue and still haven't had one yet.
Any possible explanation?
