Ammonia taste in mouth

Common Questions and Answers about Ammonia taste in mouth

ammonia

Some describe it as “tinny,” “metallic,” “ammonia,” “blood-like,” “blood in the mouth,” bitter, or some other odd smell or taste. This smell or taste is not related to something you’ve eaten or from your environment. Most often it has no rational explanation. So that could be most likely just a form of a panic attack but since you said you are on meds I would report this to your health care provider and have them look into this. It could be a side effect and you need to ask a professional.
I am overwright but consider myself athletic. I can smell the ammonia in my nose and on my breath. I've had blood work done and my liver function is normal, ammonia levels normal, blood glucose and a1c is normal. I have been diagnosed with non -alcoholic fatty liver and I have insulin resistance. Anything would be helpful!
I felt a strange burning in the back of my head and almost gagged from the ammonia smell in my sinus'. It is starting to fade now, but I must admit it scared me. Anyone have any clues?
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.
THE PAST COUPLE OF DAYS I HAVE HAD A CONTINUALLY BITTER TASTE IN MY MOUTH. NO OTHER SYMPTOMS. I AM A 22 YEAR OLD WOMAN. JUST WONDERING IF THIS COULD BE A SIGN OF SOMETHING.
Hello, In early March I began to have symptoms including light-headedness, mild nausea, and a "synthetic" feeling accompanied by a metallic taste in my mouth. I had Hep A close to three years ago, and tested negative for b&c. My LFT and CBC were normal, except for a 1.9 total billirubin count. The more disconcerting symptoms have since subsided. The only thing that persists is a light, intermittant pain under the right side of the rib cage along with the metallic taste.
I'm going through a series of steriod shots in my neck and lower back. I lost my taste and smell before that though. My daily meds or Prinniville 20mg, Crestor 20mg, Nexium 20mg, Xanax when I need one and Anacin for headaches. That's about it besides diet cokes and normal food. I only pray this will go away. I canceled my second sinus surgery because of how bad the first one was along with missing working. Chicken, no. Just looking for a miricle.
I have a similar experience if I exercise on an empty stomach. I've also noticed an ammonia smell when I run/exercise without taking in sufficient calories. I have no idea what it is. Do you take any meds? Some meds can cause a taste in the mouth when they're being metabolized (I take Lunesta once in a while...a sleep med...and it has a metallic residual taste).
E / chronic fatique syndrome or amagalm poisoning ( not sure how you spell it) it's basically the metal filling work done by dentists.

I have absolutely no sense of Smell what so ever, and only recently started to taste this awful taste in my mouth that does not seem to fad, I can’t explain the taste it is like nothing I have tasted before, you could say it resembles the taste of Blood or metal, but no matter how many times I brush my teeth it does not seem to ware off. The Cause of this was an accident I had in an early Morning on (03.dec.2008).
The mouth smell problem was greatly removed but the smell from nose and bad taste in my throat was very much disturbing me in the evening. I went to ENT specialist. He did sinoscopy and found that there is no fault in sinus. There is slight bacterial infection in throat, tonsils and sinus. He advised me to try antiseptic betadine (providone iodine IP 2%) which is not helping me at all. He told me that it will take approximately one month to get rid of bad smell.

I also get thursty If I dont drink water. I start to get a dry throat and mouth... If i drink anything else that is not water my breath gets worse.. please help!
I have the same thing, I thougth I was going crazy, I can't really say what the smell is, its weird and I'm not sure how to describe it, maybe like a chemical, chlorine, ammonia, and or burnt plastic funky smell. I also get a weird taste in my mouth, sort of like what the odor might taste like, I am smelling it right now & still can't describe it. It is frustrating and scary.
I had the copper like taste in my mouth most of the time during the whole treatment. It was really hard to deal with but about a month after I finished it left. Stay strong it is a difficult treatment but the end results is worth it.
ammonia after taste in my stomach up to my mouth and i'm wetting the bed
it's a pretty disgusting taste in my mouth. Nothing, that will ruin my appetite or cravings though. -My solution(temporary solution) every day, is to use a neti pot. After brushing my teeth and washing my face I really need to clear my nose. I have always been this way. Usage of a neti pot allows me to blow my nose, clearing the drainage, and wash away the smell at the same time. Sometimes the smell will come back...and I just use the neti pot again.
anyone know why im in rage and have a numb feeling brain arm and headached also ammonia and metallic smell in my nose once and awhile?
I have just recently had the same problem and hope someone can tell me where it is stemming from? Everytime I breathe in through my nose lately everything smells like "ammonia"!!!!! I haven't been using any cleaning chemicals, I am a smoker but have never experienced this before!!!! Help!!!!!!!!
What puzzles me is I have a constant bitter/ ammonia type taste in my mouth, and most hot foods trigger this smell as the food reaches my lips, but tames down the bitter/ ammonia smell when I am chewing. Most flavors are severely muted or taste like and ingedient is missing. I have tried a sinus rinse for several days, without any improvement. I do have acid reflux and I have been taking prilosec otc daily. I also take phexophenadine during the summer months (although not now).
I had nasal polyps removed last week and today I noticed a strange smell but only on the right side and a nastyish taste in the back of my throat. I see my doctor tomorrow to get the splints removed and will ask her what is going on.
My burning smell was caused by hypothyroidism and I also had an acid taste in my mouth. I had this for a couple of years and of course was told it was in my head and put on antidepressants. When I started talking Eltroxin for my thyroid the smell went away along with many other unexplained symtoms.
I'll use that with a salt water solution and then use a syringe to irrigate with 16 mls of antifungal/antibiotic wash in each side. I was at a point where I could not taste or smell anything, 2 years ago. Now I can almost smell everything. Plus, it used to make me so fatigued, now I'm almost full energy again. It is considered to be an autoimmune disease because it taxes your immune so much to be constantly battling yeast. Even after all this time, I still have bad days. Today was one.
Try washing your hands with baking soda, you can taste it in your mouth. I am still itch free and to the stage now (after 2 weeks of doing this twice a day) that I have cut the bleach amount down to 1/4 cup and the time down to 5 minutes soaking, no soap or or shampoo, then a hot water rinse in the shower and a brisk towel dry. Wether or not this condition is from my Hep C, I feel better, more positive and smell lemony fresh.

The usual oral dose of lactulose is about 15-30 ml given twice a day to induce 2-3 soft bowel movements daily. Abdominal bloating and a sweet taste in the mouth are the principal adverse effects associated with normal doses of lactulose. Xifaxan/Rifaximin works in a different way. It's an antibiotic that reduces the amount of ammonia produced in the gut. (It doesn't draw fluid into the bowel like lactulose or kristalose does.) Good luck to you!
Good morning everyone. Is this a mouth virus I've got? Its a Some form of the Andromeda Strain? lol! But no. Seriously. Whatever this thing is - kidney stone looking little rocks are growing in my mouth! I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP!! I have been pulling & grinding these things out of my mouth of all places for months now.
