I have been dealing with a very strong metallic taste in my mouth for 4 months. I have had this before a year ago but it went away after about 2 weeks. I stopped all medications for 3 weeks and the metallic taste went away for the first 2 days and came right back. I don't drink anything but water (usually bottled), ice tea, juice and coffee. I have tried stopping each of those with no change. I went to the dentist and got a clean bill of health there. I went to an ENT doctor 2 weeks ago and he did a CAT scan and said I had some sinus issues and put me on a steriod dose pack, Keflex (antibiotic) and a nasal spray. The metallic taste went away for about 5 days but then came back. I am starting my 3rd week of the antibiotics now and the taste is as strong as ever. When this started 4 months ago - I noticed 5 or 6 bumps come up below my bottom lip. I also had several mouth sores for a few weeks. All of that went away - but the metallic taste remains. It is like I have a mouth full of copper pennies or paper clips - it feels like it is seeping out from under my teeth - not just one or two of them - but ALL of them. I would apprecitate any thoughts or ideas.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
