I think I am going crazy. For the last month there has been a cool sensation in my mouth, throat, and into sinuses. It is like sucking on Vicks. Cool and always there. I don't smoke so that can't be it. Nothing helps. I read that GERD can do this so have been treating it as such for the last two weeks doesn't help. Web sites mention abnormal tastes that are bitter, fruity, sweet, or metallic. None mention a cool menthol or minty taste or feeling. Can't determine if it is a taste or a feeling. I have an appointment soon with an ENT but feel apprehensive as this is quite odd. Amy ideas?

  • i have the same problem. it started three days ago. i also have the sensation under my eyelids,my sinuses, and the tip of my tongue.i have not had any answers. we need to find similar about ourselves. i do not take any medication. i think my heat pump is leaking something because it is not as warm when it blows out. i was thinking that could be the culprit.

  • If anyone is still on this forum, I have been experiencing this minty/cold sensation from my chest to my forehead for a few months now. This lasts all day every day. I am wondering if anyone has had any plumbing issues in their home?? I have had random minty tastes but only for moments at a time and I noticed always when I'm at kitchen sink or in the bathroom. I finally tore the drywall out of my bathroom a few days ago and found mold in the walls. Of course then I went to the kitchen and ripped up the wood under the sink and found mold and a water leak there as well. Just curious if anyone else has these symptoms with any sort of plumbing / moisture issue in their home.
