At the worst phase (2 weeks ago), my mouth tasted like I had been sucking on a burned metal pipe. I found myself tasting many things to get the flat icky metallic flavor out of my mouth! Many foods had a bad after taste that made the problem worse.
Since being nauseated lately, I find it difficult to find meals to eat which I would enjoy. There will be food in the fridge that I just do not feel like eating and thus I have to force myself to eat something. It is an oddity. I get more nauseous with an empty stomach. Therefore, I have to eat regularly.
Aside from my new love of wasabi peanuts, I find great comfort in Dreyer's brand Orange Cream Sherbert. I eat it everyday and if I had no sense I would eat it for every meal! It has the effect on me like a security blanket. When I was in the hospital orange sherbet was the first thing I was able to keep down. The cool smooth texture and mild taste of the ice cream was so relieving and still is! When nauseous it feels better to eat cold things rather than hot.
Comfort foods I find that I can eat:
- cold pumpkin pie
- cottage cheese
- strawberry kiwi jello
- roast chicken with gravy
- roast turkey with gravy
- roast pork with gravy
- mashed potatoes
- canned green beans
- soups such as clam chowder or beef vegetable
