Sort of bitter, almost like tylenol except that I am on no medications whatsoever, and have not even taken a tylenol in weeks.
You may have a tonsil stone(s) Tonsil stones or also called tonsiliths are putrid smeilling and tasting balls of old food, salia and bacteria which become trapped in the tonsil folds. Here is a video which shows tonsil stones... after you see what it is, look into your throat and see if you can see anything similar in the folds of the tonsils.

Nope, that isn't it. I am actually more concerned about the unrelenting change in libido. They presented at precisly the same time. I normaly have a fairly low libido, (we have 4 kids and I am notoriously low on time and energy) Yet suddenly I am completly insatable. I also noticed today in the shower that I have breastmilk even tho I have not breast fed in almost 2 years, and that only for a few months.
The fact that you have noted breast milk coupled with the increase in labido warrants a pregnancy test, and if it is not possible that you are pregnant, then investigation into your hormone levels may be helpful in pin pointing a reason for the sudden change in labido and breast milk. I would recommend you make an appointment with your gynecologist so he can help you with this.

I am most assuridly not pregnant, as I had a tubal ligation. What hormones could cause this and is there any potential danger? My husband lost his job and our insurance with it so I can't afford to go to the doctor for something that is most likely harmless.
It's important to know that mood disorders as well as foods you eat (
oysters, pistachios, chocolate and certain spices, such as chili pepper and ginger)
and testosterone levels can all cause an increase in labido. There is a syndrome called Persistant Genital Arousal Disorder, you can read abit it here:

Also brain changes can bring about changes in labido as well.

Thank you so much! I asked this same question on the medical side and the OB-GYN was completly unhelpfull, just sugested I start an antianxiety med and seemed agitated by my followup questions. You are so patient and seem to truly give a darn. Bless you.
