Unpleasant taste in mouth
Incidence: In Chinese medicine: a bitter taste suggests heat, most commonly of the liver or gall bladder; a sweet pasty taste suggest damp heat in the spleen; foul taste points to liver or stomach heat; salty taste indicates kidney disharmony. Inability to distinguish tastes is usually due to deficient spleen qi.
