Salty mouth, nausea, diarrhea …… HELP!?
Wonder what could be wrong with me? When I have diarrhea and feel nauseated I get this terribly salty taste in my mouth for about 5-10 minutes. My saliva gets really thick and feels like I have dumped a lot of salt in my mouth.

You are dehydrated, drink some fluids ASAP!! Spit out that ickiness you get in your mouth and rinse with water. Drink fluids RIGHT NOW. Water would be best. Keep a bowl or tiolest handy just in case you vomit. FLUIDS.

Go to this web site It will tell you the reason for having the salty taste in your mouth Because theres a few reasons it could be happening to you But dont worry Its not serious As for the nausea and diarrhea I dont know what to say about that You can try taking imodium Thatll help with the diarrhea And the nausea I would try eating dry toast (Make sure you dont put anything on it) Itll help soak up the extra acid in your stomach Or find an over the counter med If symptoms still persist after a week Definetely get yourself to a doctor It could be serious I hope you feel better soon

Cancer.

Answer by Flopdonk
Obviously a doctor could diagnose this far better than anyone guessing on the internet but it almost sounds like Giardia or alcohol poisoning (dehydration causing by fluid loss from the diarrhea is likely causing the salty taste). It could be any number of things but I would drink lots of water and not wait to find out for yourself

Sour taste in mouth due to intake of sleeping pills? HELP?

Sour taste in mouth due to intake of sleeping pills? HELP?
I’ve been taking sleeping pills for 3 months now. They contain zolpidem tartrate. Ever since, I’ve had this sour taste in my mouth. At first I thought it was nothing. After a while, even after the 3 months, the sour taste persisted, and it bothered me all night long, leaving me with insomnia at night. I’m pretty sure this has to due with the sleeping pills damaging my stomach or liver or something. I have a pain in the stomach/liver area. Recently I have fallen ill for 5 days to date, and suffered from nausea, diarrhea, headache, weakness, persisting sour taste in the mouth. This illness began on a busy day when I woke up early after a night of sleeplessness, went on a car ride, got carsick, delivered something, gave something to someone else who lived a few blocks away, got into the car again, got extremely carsick due to the driver heating the car, was dropped off and I dropped something off again, went home, didn’t rest, drop something off, and walked quite a lot (a lot more than a few blocks – to one place that’s pretty far away and back home again). By that time I was so tired and so weak I felt I could hardly stand and retain consciousness. And that’s how it was for 5 days. I’ve been getting better, but I still have this sour taste. I have a feeling all this is connected. Can someone please help?

Answer by Debbie V
This doesn’t sound like side-effects from Ambien. Sounds more like food poisoning.

I have noted that those pills (I take 20 mg/night) taste really yucky in my mouth. I make sure to take them with food and get them down quickly. They taste bitter to me.

Weight the pros against the cons. Lunesta has that same problem. Maybe try a different sleep aid?

My daughter had a reaction after chewing big red gum; mouth and throat burning, nausea, diarrhea and shaking??

My daughter had a reaction after chewing big red gum; mouth and throat burning, nausea, diarrhea and shaking??
The first night, she just felt like it was heartburn and spit it out. Then, the following night, she tried it again and got severe burning in mouth and throat, then had diarrhea and nausea. She began shaking uncontrollably all over her body. About 30 minutes later, it was all gone. Anyone hear of anything like this or know what the culprit could be?

Answer by Jim G
could be the cinnamon

Answer by tessasmomy
What’s in the gum? Any of the ingredients could be the culprit. The burning sounds like maybe the cinnamon, but without knowing ALL the ingredients I can’t give you a very educated guess. I would call her doctor at once! This kind of reaction is anaphylactic and she needs to be allergy tested and carry an Epi-Pen.

Answer by sparky39fire
Either the flavouring or the red dye. Bring her to an allergist with a pack of big red in tow to determine what it is…

and don’t let her have any more

Answer by redjetta
She’s allergic to something in the gum.

So obviously don’t let her chew it anymore.

If she does “by accident” then you can counter the effects somewhat by giving her Benadryl.

Answer by karieaddy
Talk to your doctor about this. He or she may be able to tell you what’s going on.

Answer by violett
she could be having an allergic reaction to the gum
some people is allergic to the food colouring of red
u might want to have her tested for any allergies

Answer by TexasRose
Yes! I have heard of this. It was a special report by a doctor on TV. I would suggest she not chew that gum…or any kind like that. It can be very seruous(sounds like it already was). If she should have that kind of reaction…take her to the doctor or ER ASAP!!

Answer by hah
not a doctor, but, having said that…
the gum is spicey, I get sick from chewing any gum, my stomache produces too much bile(it is fooled into thhinking food is coming)…it causes nausea and diarrhea for me too and I am an adult, but it always has. I be t your daughter is thin, probably has a very productive and perhaps over active metabolism and her stomache produces maybe alittle more bile than the next persons…The shaking is possibly because she has not been able to absorb any calories so she is week after the event,,,,I would keeep her away from chewing gum….good luck…hope it helps…

Answer by amberlicious81
I would guess its the red dye, alot of people are allergic to red dyes. you should take her to her Dr and see what he says. oh, and dont give her big red gum anymore…

Answer by NATIVE NEW YORKER
WELL SHE’S OBVIOUSLY ALLERGIC TO SOMETHING IN THAT PARTICULAR GUM
DON’T GO NEAR THE STUFF AGAIN

Is the stomach flu contagious through the mouth if their only symptom is nausea and diarrhea?

Is the stomach flu contagious through the mouth if their only symptom is nausea and diarrhea?

Answer by Maryn Bittner
Yes. No kissing. Wash dishes in hot water, plenty of detergent. Wash your hands many times a day so you aren’t moving infectious agents from mouth to hand to everything you touch. When you feel better, get a new toothbrush, or wash yours in hot water and dish soap. (Rinse thoroughly or you’ll be sick for a different reason.)

Answer by Damien and Malachai’s Mom
There is no such thing as the “stomach flu”.Its called Norwalk virus.

Norwalk prevention:

Norwalk virus
(Just remember that hand sanitizers will not kill this virus.House hold cleaners such as Lysol will also not kill you.You must use bleach.)

The Norwalk virus causes viral Gastroenteritis which is known as the nasty 24 hour bug that causes explosive and sudden diarrhea and projectile vomiting.Usually non life threating but can cause complications in the very young,elderly and those with compromised immune systems.

PREVENTION-Wash your hands before preparing food/eating food and most importantly, TOUCHING YOUR MOUTH/NOSE/EYES.

The ONLY way to become infected with this virus is if you ingest the contaminated fecal/vomit particles through your eyes,nose and mouth.

It is impossible to “breathe” in the virus BUT possible to become infected by breathing in aerosol “spray” droplets from someone vomiting right next to you.(the droplets settle within minuted but can still infect someone until cleaned with bleach)

Even if your whole family breaks out with this virus, you can prevent it by washing your hands for at least 15-20 seconds with warm water and soap.Remember that you are not killing the virus, you are washing it down the drain even if you use an antibacterial soap (which only kills bacteria, not viruses) hand sanitizers are also not successful in killing the virus.

If a member of your family comes down with the virus, let them know to wash their hands AFTER a bowel movement and vomiting.

To clean infected areas, clean with BLEACH.Clean bathrooms (all infected areas) with a bleach solution as soon as possible and be sure to prevent cross contamination and wash your hands afterwards.Especially children! wipe down all commonly touched objects like door knobs, faucet handles, light switches, toilet flushers etc.

People are STILL contagious even after 24 hours after their symptoms settle down so it is always important to wash your hands after the rest room (which you should do anyways!)

The key to staying Norwalk virus free is to keep sanitary.Wash your hands after using the bathroom…you could prevent other peoples misery as well as yours!!

TIPS:Do not share any cups/plates/utensils with an infected person and be sure to wash in a bleach solution to prevent cross contamination with the rest of your family.
