For the past two weeks, I've noticed that every time I drink anything, including water, I get a vile taste in the back of my mouth. I don't really have a solidified way of describing it, but it's the most unpleasant taste I've ever experienced. I keep describing it as "rot." It's mildly brought on by eating, but drinking really brings it out. When it happens, it dies down after a few seconds so it doesn't really "linger."
I went to my campus' health services center and before even getting tests done, the doctor was certain I had Thrush (later confirmed after checking me out; "it's definitely Thrush"). I looked up the symptoms of Thrush and I have none of them beside the horrid taste and what kind of seems like mild discoloration of the back of my tongue. So I was prescribed with a swish-and-swallow medicine to take four times a day for seven days. I'm four days in and if anything, I think the taste has gotten worse. In fact, as I type this, I realize that I'm tasting it without having had anything to eat or drink. The medicine hasn't helped at all. I'm wondering what this really could be. And if it is a mild form of Thrush, how can I effectively get rid of it?
