Thanks for the tip, Chiron.
Its indeed such a strange experience that suddenly even distilled water seems to have a smell to it. Kinda perfumey and revolting. Yuck. I still make myself drink water, albeit less than my thirst demands, so i will try the baths. I hope this nausea-stage passes soon. I feel like such a whiner, but I'm so uncomfortable.
Another new phenomenon I've noticed, the very far back of my tongue is tender, white and lumpy. Kinda like cauliflower. What's that all about? Did you have that too? And my halitosis is back w/ a vengeance.
