    Sudden aversion to the taste of eggs

    Why have I suddenly become averse to the taste of eggs? All I can now taste is a strong taste of sulphur. It's horrible and so strong. I used to love eggs, boiled fried egg mayonnaise etc etc. But all of a sudden all I taste is the bitter taste of sulphur. A horrible bitter taste. But why?
