There are lots of signs. I tire easily. I get a funny and constant metallic taste in my mouth. My stomach feels tight. Girl stuff starts to be off. Alone, most of those I do not notice, or I attribute them to something else [hey I did just get over being sick] or I am just not paying attention so ignore the signs like they are some pesky insect buzzing around that I can just wave away and they will be gone. So it is not till I catch a look at my face in the mirror with no make up on and notice my mouth that I see it.
I call it white mouth. It is when the color of your mouth is the same as the rest of your face. So you look sort of like a statue. All marble, no color.
White mouth means I am living on borrowed iron time again.
Back to the Floradix.

How long have you been off of it? I stopped taking it six months ago and so far, so good. No white mouth.
I am not sure, I started getting lazy and skipping iron maybe a month ago and I just do not get away with that ever.
Maybe it’s just too much Republican Convention permeating everything?
I did not know about the metallic taste sign. My sister has been complaining about that and tired, and stomach issues too – maybe I should tell her to check her iron.
I hope you feel better soon.
No one medical has ever mentioned the metallic taste thing to me but it is something that happens to me when iron goes low so I associate the two.
Woe, this is one thing I cannot blame the Republicans for. That is funny.
I get the metallic taste,too. So far though no white mouth in almost a year even though I gradually stopped taking the Floradix I’ve been eating tons of red cabbage! Get back on that Floradix or I’m sending you a head of cabbage.
Anything but cabbage. Or kale. [shudder]
You know liver is rich in iron…
Spank has to stay on her Iron, too. Her blood levels are great, but she still looks anemic. Like a ghost.
It would take five large servings of liver to equal one shot of floradix. It would take fifteen shots of floradix to equal just one of the pills I had to take back when the iron sitch was red plaid emergency bad. I cannot eat the amount of food it would require to keep my iron levels up. I have thought about just chewing on a damn nail though.
I have the same problem.
I swear to god floradix tastes like metal mixed with apricot juice.
Serves me right for feeling complacent–just got a phone call from the medical office, I need another blood test because my iron levels are at the lowest end of normal and I should start taking Floradix again.
Oops. That is not good.
I think according to Chinese medicine white mouth means too much yang and not enough young. But don’t quote me on that.
[As if that really helped].
Here, check it out.
Oh, sorry. Make that yin. Not enough yin.
[Gee, what was I thinking?]
Also, I am in spam. Thanks!
According to an Eastern medicine practitioner, every one of my health issues is directly linked to the spleen. So I have to be really nice to the spleen. Probably I should read up more on the spleen issue too.
