Suddenly all food and drink taste vile

Patient : For the last 6-7 days everything I eat tastes and smells the same .. But not a nice taste/smell it's horrible , almost like its all gone off. I can't drink certain drinks either, diet coke and squash taste strongly of this horrible taste - so I am just having water now. This even includes when I brush my teeth - toothpaste smells and tastes disgusting lately. I haven't changed my diet lately, I am not pregnant and nor can I see anything wrong with my mouth. Please help as it's driving me crazy.
Symptoms:  Bad taste in mouth
