Why does my tongue feel furry and my tastebuds seem wonky after eating a salad??

I have just eaten a salad with cos lettuce, lebanese cucumber, salad onion, avocado and green beans and lemon juice. While I was eating it I thought it tasted a bit bitter and I couldn't make out the different tastes of each vegetable but put it down to the lemon juice playing with my tastebuds. Now 10 minutes afterwards I realise my tongue and the insides of my cheeks are furry feeling and a little numb on the surface like after I eat a lot of pineapple but even weirder is that my sense of taste is all over the place. Sweet things sort of taste salty and water tastes bitter!
Everything except the lettuce (which I washed) and the avocado I had also eaten last night with no effect.
