Not certain: Could be infection, or even a neurological issue. It would be best to discuss this with your physician

Metallic taste: Could be from infected/bleeding gums, food impaction areas between and around teeth, a broken/loose dental restoration, infected throat/tonsils/adenoids/sinuses, neurologic impairment, systemic disease, etc. As m metallic taste most often has an oral cavity cause, first see your Dentist. If there are no dental markers you will be referred to appropriate dental or medical specialist for evaluation.
