  • Are you taking any medications? They can sometimes cause a metallic taste. In Chinese medicine a metallic taste signifies a Lung inbalance - do you have any issues with asthma, allergies, sinus, sadness or grief?

  • I also had a metallic taste in my mouth for about a week. Then I woke up one morning and the left side of my face was paralyzed. I was diagnosed with Bells Palsy. Metallic taste is one of the symptoms. Please get checked for Bells Palsy as soon as possible. Are you experiencing any other symptoms like slurred speech or pain in your ear?
