For several weeks now I have had this sensation that I can only describe as seeming like I have Vick's Vapo-rub in my mouth. It tastes and smells kind of minty and it feels like there are vapors rising into my nose and eyes and my throat burns. I've tried drinking all kinds of different drinks, tongue scrapers, new clean toothbrushes (because I thought it was leftover toothpaste in my mouth) and I can't get rid of it. I've been trying to research what might be happening, but I can't find any answers. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • I'm having the same exact problem & I don't have any answers yet so I hope someone responds to this thread! It's almost scary to have it boiling up from the inside. It's got to be something since you and I are having the exact same issue. Are you on any meds?

  • Me too, just started to look into it. Started for me yesterday, very strange.
    I was at the local pool watching my daughter swim and feeling very dehydrated what with all the heat and chlorinated air. I started talking to a mate who was chewing gum that I could smell and since then I've had the sensation?
    Recently I just started a biological course of treatment for arthritis, not sure if this is relevant?
