Has any one out there ever heard of a sweet taste in your mouth? Every thing my husband tries to eat tastes horribly sweet and makes him sick.

Hi @bjacp, welcome to Connect. I searched around on the Internet a bit and found a bit of information:
– Taste Disorders from NIH https://www.nidcd.nih.gov/health/taste-disorders
– Do You Have an Unexplained Sweet Taste in Your Mouth? http://www.badmouths.org/sweet-taste-in-mouth/ NOTE: there is no information about the website creator, article author or funding of this website
Has your husband always had this taste issue or is it recent? Is it a symptom of an underlying condition like diabetes? Can you tell us a bit more?
I do not have a problem with a sweet taste but I do have a problem with carbonation. I find I can no longer drink a carbonated drink daily. Oft times it will cause a burning sensation in my mouth that actually is painful. Also, carbonation seems to cause bladder and kidney problems as well now. For me, I have simply quit drinking carbonated drinks. Does anyone out there know of anything that will cause healing to the esophagus and stomach when they are irritated?

Hi @2122, I would suggest an appointment with a GI specialist. They are the more likely group of specialists to help you with esophagus and stomach irritations. Have you seen a GI specialist yet? Have you had a Gastro-endoscopy done (it is a procedure where they sedate you and put a tube with a camera down through the esophagus and look around for inflammation, etc.)? After they take a look and decide what the problem is there are lots of meds available (both prescription and over-the counter) that could be helpful for you. Keep us posted on how you are doing. Looking forward to hearing from you again.
Hi all, I moved this message to the Digestive Health group to help other members find it more easily. I also modified the title to “sweet taste and other taste disorders”.
