Bowel Disorders :: Irritable - Urinary Incontinence, Metallic Taste And Smell

Jun 13, 2015

I noticed the following changes in my body when I experiencing some stress:

1. Frequent urge to urinate.

2. Restless legs (and other parts of body).

3. Heightened irritability (Anger/Mood swing).

4. Irritable bowel.

5. Metallic taste in my mouth and weak gums.

6. Metallic smell coming from my fingers.

7. Frequent feeling of thirst.

All of these seven symptoms occur simultaneously when I am late awake in the night or during stressful situations, and they are affecting my ability to function.

On a related note, I also experience sleep paralysis and hyperhidrosis but it is not simultaneous with the above symptoms.

I have noticed that these symptoms manifest themselves together. The restless legs problem occurs when there is urge to urinate (which is frequent) and I experience some relief after I urinate.

There is some bowel irritability and gastric problems which worsens during the night.

I have noticed that even at times when I do get my 8 hours of sleep in the day, I experience rage issues late in the night (at around 4-5 am) which recedes quickly in an hour or two.

I experience metallic taste in my mouth and a metallic smell in my fingers often. Other symptoms, such as gastric problems, urinary incontinence, and restless legs are almost always present when I am experiencing the metallic taste and smell.

The symptoms are relieved when I urinate (which I have to do quite often), brush my teeth, or sleep. They return quickly though when I am experiencing some level of stress.

The problems have been slowly worsening over the years and are interfering my ability to function normally.

Digestive Disorders :: Upper Abdominal Pain, Metallic Taste, Bone Pain

I'm a 27 year old female and I've been having abdominal pain for 2 months now. I've had a CT scan and blood tests done and everything came back normal other than an elevated WBC in the urinalysis. I can't get in to see my doctor for a few days and just want some peace of mind. I'm having bad sharp upper abdominal pain. It started on the left side originally but is now happening all over my stomach and I'm ridiculously bloated. I started having weird bone pain a few weeks afterward--there is no pattern. My hands will hurt, then my left leg will hurt, then my right hip, etc. Today I started noticing a metallic taste in my mouth as well. Anyone know what this could be? I've researched everything from hemochromatosis (my mom carries the gene) to H Pylori but nothing fits perfectly.

Unexplained Spells For Years, Numbness, Metallic Taste

I was wondering if anyone can help. I have had these strange episodes for years that no doctor can diagnose. Out of nowhere my hands go kind of numb, I get a metallic taste in my mouth, my face gets hot, and I feel like I am in a fog. Sometimes I feel nauseous, sometimes I feel like I will fall to the floor. They are very random. When I do have them, I will have a few in one day, like I said, sporadic. Has anyone else had these symptoms?

Occipital Neuralgia - Metallic Taste And Cheek Numbness

I was told by my neurologist that's what I have which is fine I have a lot of the symptoms (burning in head, ache, sharp pains, etc.) however I would like to know if anyone else experiences a metallic taste with theirs?

Or bitter taste? Hard to explain the taste exactly but I noticed I only get this taste when my ON acts up.

My right cheek also feels numbish when it comes along. I have a nerve test for neuropathy in a few weeks (to see which kind I have) and have had CT/MRI of brain which was clear so the taste may be related to the neuropathy but it just seems weird it comes when the ON comes.

Gallbladder Removal :: Headache, Wobbly And Metallic Taste After One Week

My 74 year old mother in law had her gallbladder removed a week ago. After a year of intense pain she is now pain free, but seems to be taking a long while to recover from the anaesthetic- she has suffered headaches, backache, a dry mouth and a nasty metallic taste as well as feeling unsteady on her feet. She has not eaten well for months, due to near constant pain, but although she has been drinking lots of water and eating small but proper meals again post op, she is not feeling herself yet. She has not had a GA in over 40 years and we have been reassuring her that at 74 it will take a good week to get all the anaesthetic out of her system, but I had hoped she would have been feeling better each day. It is my father in law's 80th on Saturday and she would love to be well - any suggestions welcome, or just reassurance. She is seeing a nurse tomorrow to have the stitches removed so will be checked then but I suspect she will be told it just takes time.

Duodenal Ulcer :: PPI Side Effects - Dry Throat And Mouth With Metallic Taste

I was given lansoprazole due to a suspected stomach ulcer. I started taking it but was unable to continue to take the lansoprazole as it gave me a worse pain in my stomach than I already had and also a dry throat and mouth. I have now been diagnosed with h.pylori and started with triple therapy - esomeprazole (nexium)/amoxicillin/clarithromycin. The nexium isn't causing any stomach pain but is making my throat and mouth very dry and given me a sore throat and I am also suffering from a very unpleasant metallic taste in my mouth constantly. I went to the doctors again today and was given omeprazole to take instead but now I don't want to take it because I don't feel it will make much difference. Has anyone else had these side effects from the PPI and are there any alternatives I can take to inhibit the acid enough to let the antibiotics do their job?

Metallic Smell Coming From My Vagina During Intercourse

For about a month now I have noticed a metallic smell coming from my vagina. Recently it has gotten stronger. During intercourse is the only time I smell it. I also am experiencing dryness during intercourse as well. My fiance noticed it a few days ago while we were intimate. He also said he felt a burning sensation, but I feel nothing. We don't use protection when we have sex..Its not my period, but I know something isn't right. Now my fiance feels burning. I'm very worried and have an appointment in a few days to get checked out. What can this be?

Thyroid Disorders :: From A Sweet Taste To A Bitter Taste

(Background: Had an ear infection over the Summer that had me taking antibiotics, nose and ear drops. Put flea powder on my cat that went up my nose and caused a metal blood taste in my mouth. I stopped drinking well water because of it. A couple of months after the ear infection seemed to go away.) My sense of taste sent me to the doctor to begin with. If I ate certain foods my body felt sweat through my veins, burning almost. So I went off sugar thinking that was it. I had my blood tested and they said I was on the border of having thyroid. I took the synthroid medicine prescribed and had a really bad reaction, so they took me off of them. I haven't had any medication for 1 month and a half, but now my taste went from sugary to bitter. Like maybe I had ate too much cheese or something. Sometimes it feels like I have a lump of cream cheese in my stomach.  I am waiting to go to a specialist about my thyroid, but I have my doubts about it. I think I might have a bacteria infection throughout my body. I did notice a bump on the roof of my mouth on the right side. Is this normal? Can someone please tell me what is going on? I have always been a worry wart, but I am not tired, I have a little difficulty going to sleep, and I lost 7 pounds since June.

Women's Health :: Copper/metallic Vaginal Smell?

The last couple of months, I have been suffering what I find to be an unusual vaginal odor. It is not "fishy" or "bleachy" but rather smells... metallic/coppery? Could also be described as a slightly "sour" smell?

Similar to the smell of menstruation-- yet occurs even when I'm not on my period. My discharge doesn't have this odor at all, and doesn't seem to be out of the norm. I can only smell it on my partner after we've had intercourse, etc

My doctor has prescribed me medication for yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis and both didn't seem to have any impact whatsoever on the issue.

I'm taking Blackmores Women's Bio Balance probiotics and I haven't seen any change either.

This is becoming very frustrating and putting a damper on my self-confidence and my sex life.

Kidney Stones In Urethra - Urinary Incontinence

A CT scan showed my husband had a kidney stone in his urethra. He is not sure if he passed it yet or not. One day he had huge, huge pain and I took him to the hospital and they gave him pain pills but since then (a week ago) he's had no pain, so he thinks he might have passed it. Only one problem - he has urinary incontinence which is driving him crazy. Any thoughts?
