HASHIMOTO'S AND OTHER ISSUES, POST-PARTUM
Hi Ted, My main reason for writing is that I have a metallic taste in my mouth that I am trying to get rid of. I have had it for about a week. Just prior to this happening, I started taking Magnesium Citrate: 250 mg a day, Zinc as mono-methionine: 20 mg, and Calcium Citrate: 630 mg-- all for about a week (the magnesium a little longer). Because of the taste, I stopped everything.
I am a 35 year old woman, 128 lbs at 5' 8." I am also 7 months post partum and lactating. Just a few months ago in June my body just gave out. It began with muscle tremors, quivering, and muscle weakness. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Hypothyroid and I think I have Sjogren's Syndrome. Dry eyes and mouth. I started the Specific Carb diet high in protein (GAPS Diet). I started it because I have been on so many antibiotics, I found out that I have leaky Gut and adrenal fatigue and am sure I have Candida. (I am waiting for my stool results). This is the reason I started with the supplements listed above. But now I am scared to take anything.
The only other thing is that after flossing one day I rinsed with hydrogen peroxide and listerine many times. Could this be the cause? Thank you for your time.
