Hi, Please help. Since the beginning of February I have had a sweet taste in my mouth. My primary doctor first diagnosed me with heart burn. Tried Nexium, pepcid AC, Prilosec. Then sent me for a EGD revealed no damage just said excessive stomach acid. Next tried Pepcid, than Prevacid. Still no change. Currently waiting to see a GI specialist. Not until the middle of July.
Currently trying a heavy metal detox.

Could appreciate any help.

  • When you kiss someone, does your saliva taste sweet to them? Look up taste disorders.

  • No. My husband can't tell. And there is not a odor either. I forgot to mention in the beginning my doc. did a complete blood work. To check for common issues, anemia, diabetes. I will check out the taste area. Thanks

  • It could be from artificial sweetener, if you take in too much, or have an efficient excretory system, it will be released in your saliva! hope this eases your worries!
