Bad taste in mouth - December 14th 2009, 07:59 PM

Hi everyone,

I've been dealing with a bitter/metallic kind of taste in my mouth for the last few weeks... It's getting to the point where it's really bugging me.
Any ideas on its cause?

Hey =]

I've had that before. I found that my diet predominantly effected the taste in my mouth. For example, Dairy products like milk and cheese often left that kind of taste in my mouth. Try eating plenty of fruity things, and washing your mouth out with water after eating.

You could also carry mints with you if it bugs you too much =]

Stupid question, but are you brushing your teeth 2-3 times a day? It's also important to floss, as brushing is good but doesn't get food out from between your teeth (that can stay there and end up making your mouth taste yucky).

Also, increase your fluid intake! One of the best ways to help oral hygiene is to drink drink drink. If it keeps up, see a dentist or a doctor.

Best of luck

I eat decently... I try to eat a balanced diet.
And yes, I do brush my teeth twice a day, floss/mouthwash/all that good stuff too...

I'm starting to think that this might be a sinus thing because I "feel" this taste more towards the back of my throat, although it gets me because this has been going on for several weeks now.
I hope it'll go away by itself....

Hmmm. The kinda feeling you get when you have a cold? In that case, yea, may well be your sinus's - if it persists see a doc or get some remedy from the chemists =]
