    Ever since I could remember, I could taste glass...and it's disgusting. I know this sounds really bizarre to a lot of people, but I can't drink out of glasses. I have to use plastic cups. Glass has an awful smell/taste to me. It smells sort of sulfery...kind of like a bad fart. I get sick to my stomach if my lips touch it. It's ok if I have a straw, but my lips can never have direct contact with glass.

    Anyway, since people with fibromyalgia tend to be chemcial sensitive, I wonder if this tasting glass thing is part of it. I've only ever known one other person who has this problem. Does anyone else here taste glass?
