I have had a bitter taste on my tongue for the past week. It is particularly noticeable when I eat anything - everything tastes bitter. Sometimes it feels like it is waning, but it never completely disappears, and can get bad at any point of the day or night. It is right in the middle of my tongue.
Sometimes i have the sensation as though i have burnt it (bit sore, rough feeling - i can't remember if I actually burnt it), but there is nothing visible on my tongue, and have been advised to brush it and use mouthwash, but with no change. I am in my twenties, and have been diagnosed with IBS, but I don't know if this is relevant. I eat a normal healthy diet.
Any advice much appreciated.
