Customer Question

Suddenly foods with sugar leave a bad taste in the back of my mouth
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: About a week ago I had a small piece of chocolate and it didn't taste right. I thought the chocolate was "bad" and left it at that...two days alter I was eating my peanut butter and strawberry jelly sandwich and the jelly left the same strange taste in my mouth. Now, anything I eat that has refined sugar, jello, juice, cake icing doesn't taste good.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Doctors generally expect a deposit of about $34 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
