For the passed 4-5 days, my mouth has tasted like Iron and my body smells just like iron, according to my wife. I don't take iron pills, or anything that has much of Iron. I only take Omega-3 pills twice a day, once when I wake up, and once before I go to bed. I'm a 21 year old Male. I don't know if the information I’m about to say will help, but maybe it will. I don't drink soda, only Ice Tea and 4 cups of milk a day. I don't eat any sugary candies, or chew gum. I don't smoke or take any drugs at all. I drink maybe twice a week, but it's only like 2-3 beers over a course of 3 hours. I eat somewhat healthy. I eat tons of vegetables and fruits. I eat maybe meat maybe 2-3 days a week. I don't know if any of this helps, but this whole thing is weird. Every time I breathe in, it kind of hurts, and it's really annoying, since everything taste like iron, especially the air. I work in a professional environment, so the smell of iron isn't too appealing. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you very much.
Have you recently ingested any zinc cold remedies? These products can cause olfactory nerve damage which results in odd smells/tastes and even a complete loss thereof. I have olfactory nerve damage from a zinc cold remedy (cough lozenges) and I smell sulphur or burnt hair all the time. When the damage first occured I smelled ammonia very strongly.
