strange symptoms

      I'm a 26 year old male otherwise healthy.  I drink on average 12 beers a day, which i know is not good for me, and on the weekends or get togethers more than that. For the past 4 years I've been having heart palpitations, and a 26 beat run of ventricular tachycardia.  EP dr thought it to be benign, 1 out of 4 EP's I seen wanted me to do the EP study and "possible" ablation.  As far as that goes and testing I've wore holter monitors, ekgs, stress test, stress echo, MRI of the heart, echos, blood work, all normal besides some PVC's, and that run of V-tach.  Now I'm going to go 3 months back.

3 months ago I started having slight headaches, and a weird taste in my mouth everynow and then. It has been getting constantly worse and now I have headaches occasionally and the bad taste in my mouth is there ALL the time, wife says my breath smells bad/weird sometimes with it, its really hard to explain the taste its just very unusual and feels like sometimes its coming from the roof of my mouth. It dont go away no matter how much I brush my teeth.  Sometimes when I go to wash clothes and I'm pouring the powder laundry detergent and I smell the powder, its almost as if you would put some of that in your mouth and it tastes like that all the time though. Thats the best description I can give of the taste. Since this has started about 3 months or less ago, I've also lost about 18 lbs unintentionally. My appetite is not good at all, just no desire to eat. I dont exercise or do anything so that cant be the cause.  I also recently developed these strange muscle spasms/twinges, and muscle cramps everywhere, this started about 3-4 weeks ago, before they started I was having muscle pains in my thighs, and calves, and it would switch from one to the other throughout the day.  I also get them in my arms, and sometimes feels like in my head. I get the twitches everywhere, legs, arms, eye.  And I have musle pains in my legs all day, mainly in back of calves. My urine is ALWAYS very clear, no color to it at all. I'm also constantly fatigued all day, no matter how much I sleep it seems like Im just worn out and tired.  What could all these symptoms be of?  Dr ordered blood work for thyroid,CBC,kidney,liver,electrolytes,B12 all was normal.   Waiting results of heavy metal screening blood work. Seems like my palpitations are getting worse also with it and my chest feels weird at times. Also have been getting like cold sweats and temporary nausea.  Just seems like all the symptoms are becoming more prominant and more often. The leg pain and the bad taste in mouth is the most constant. I know this is a list of things but if anyone has any ideas please let me know.  

I was wondering about peripheral neuropathy, or autonomic neuropathy that could be causing all my symptoms? As I'm sitting here writing this I keep getting intermittent pain in my left leg like on the left side of my calf, the pain will come on SUPER intense like the muscle is about to pop out and then last about 5 seconds and go away only to come back within like 5 mins or so.  Also when it comes on its like I can feel kinda like a tingling sensation throughout my body and into like the back of my head. Kinda electric like feeling. Also my appetite still hasnt improved, and i still have the strange/bad taste in my mouth.  Also the intermittent leg pain sometimes when it starts it will come on hurt real bad for 5 seconds, get the electric like feeling, and it'll start to subside and right before its completely done it will kick back up.  Its like it starts out kinda painful and slowly progressives to real bad all within 5-10 seconds and then goes back down from the intensity to nothing.  seems like this all might be linked from heart flutters, from intermittent leg shock pain from back of head, to bad taste in mouth and weight loss. Any ideas?

Im am sorry to say but this sounds very serious to me. You need to get more bloodwork check for autoimmune diseasese and maybe even ms or involentary muscle spasm diseases. moreover, I would consider a specialist at this point for sure. Do NOt IGNORE THESE SYMPTOMS.

My guess at this time is Gall Bladder (because of the pain and the nasty strange taste in your mouth)  You may have some stones.  Liver may be functioning but having some problems because of the alcohol consumption which is  causing fatigue, and other pain, and even the palpitations .... liver and gall bladder work together.  I suggest you stop drinking alcohol.

The closest i can think of to a washing powder taste is a soapy mouth taste which is a symptom of excess fluoride. I've read a few forums and medical links and symptoms of fluoride toxicity list every one of your symptom right down to electric like shocks in the leg. This may not be the cause of your symptoms but it is definitely worth looking into as beer contains fluoride.

Fluoride is found in toothpaste, fluoridated drinking water, infant formula, cereals, non organic grape juice, wine, beer, softdrinks/soda, tea (higher in decaf), freon, insecticides, fluoridated salt, non stick coatings, many prescription drugs, vitamins, dietary supplement, glass-etching or chrome-cleaning agents, insecticides and rodenticides.

Clear urine can be seen with liver disorders such as cirrhosis, kidney disease/failure, diabetis insipidus (kidney related), or from just being well hydrated. Kidney disease markedly increases susceptibility to fluoride toxicity. Excess fluoride exposure may contribute to kidney disease.  Kidney GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate) levels can be normal in stage 1 of kidney disease. Blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and creatinine will not be raised above the normal range until 60% of total kidney function is lost. Half white and half pink fingernails (half and half nails also called Lindsay's nails) can indicate kidney disease.

If you have a persistent elevation of serum fluoride above 0.04 mg/L (normal is less than 0.01 mg/L), you have fluoride poisoning. Fluoride level over 8 mg/L in a 24-hour urine collection indicates fluoride poisoning. Taking iodine will hasten your body's removal of fluoride.
