While cooking recently, I licked my fingers. They were salty. Washed my hands, still salty. Tested my arms, legs, anything I could reach, and my body is very salty, even after bathing. I have had digestive issues much of my adult life. (I'm 58 now)It's been a few days since I noticed this. It's the middle of winter, I am not sweating, and even when I do sweat in the summer, I do not get this salty taste on my skin. Any ideas? I wouldn't even know what to say to my doctor if I made an appointment for it. I have high blood pressure which I've been managing with medication for 25 years.
