    Hi @monkeygirl I'm sorry to hear about this particularly unpleasant phenomenon. Do you have any idea what your blood sugar
    readings were at the time? I still remember the almost pure sulphur dioxide taste, very bad diarrhoea, and being sick when my blood sugar levels rose suddenly high. It would be interesting how you fare when readings are in the desired range for a reasonable length of time. Not easy during stressful times! I hope this improves quickly.
