Sounds like: you have a serious problem. Metallic taste sounds like a medication side effect, but I think there is a lot more going on. Get t a doctor for accurate diagnosis and proper treatment. ...Read more

Being treated for lpr, with omperzaloe, raised bed, etc., but now have nasty bitter taste, excessive saliva in mouth, nothing taste good, what's next?

Being treated for lpr, with omperzaloe, raised bed, etc., but now have nasty bitter taste, excessive saliva in mouth, nothing taste good, what's next?

Bitter Taste: Hello. It still sounds like the lpr or gerd may be responsible for your symptoms. I guess the first question i would ask is how long on omeprezole? Are you having breakthrough symptoms? Are you taking. The opmeprezole once or twice daily? These are questions you can review with your ENT doctor. Also search and incorporate a low acid diet and be true to this diet. It has been shown to be curative. ...Read more

Diarrhea and vomiting 4 times in one year bad taste in mouth what could it be. I have IBS and have had 4kids.excessively vaginal discharge clear.

Gastroentritis : I suggest you see your doctor next time you have it so the doctor could do some work up to figure out what causes your problem. You also have young children, they probably bring germs home from school or daycare, make them wash hands as soon as they get home from school. I hope that help. Good luck. ...Read more

For 3 weeks, nausea, bad taste and excessive saliva in mouth and headaches. Bowel movement 1 time a week. Small, pellet like movement. What is this?

For 3 weeks, nausea, bad taste and excessive saliva in mouth and headaches. Bowel movement 1 time a week. Small, pellet like movement. What is this?

Eat and drink: You might no be eating enough fiber or enough food to move things along if there is something to move along. The bad taste etc could be from dehydration and not getting enough fluids. Not just water. Ry eating more and perhaps drinking something like gatorade for the electrolytes. See if these suggestions improve things. Both also leads to nausea. ...Read more

Can liver cause salty taste in mouth?

Eating?: Unclear what you are asking. If you have hepatitis or some other form of liver disease the subjective sensation of saltiness is so vague that would not attribute it to that. See a doctor. ...Read more

I have a constant salty taste in mouth, and eatig ice, and chewing gum, make it worse. Why?

Saliva : You could be dehydrated or be having post nasal drip with sinus infection. Your saliva glands could be infected. You could also have a vitamin deficiency, endocrine problem or neurological (brain) issue. People with epilepsy or migraines report salty taste often. Increase your water intake for two days-if still present see your doctor. ...Read more
