I really don't feel well today, I woke up with a slight headache. I still have a weird chalky taste in my mouth and feel very tired and drained.

CFS or fibromyalgia: Cfs, chronic fatigue syndrome, and fibromyalgia patients often suffer from drained feeling and lack of energy. I have seen patients with altered taste sensation, but may be more anecdotal and not be a factor for diagnosis. Judging from "still have a weird chalky…", I assume you've had this condition for a while. Please continue diagnostic process with your doctor(s) to narrow down diagnoses. ...Read more

I have a migraine headache and a strong metallic taste in my mouth, are they connected?

I have a migraine headache and a strong metallic taste in my mouth, are they connected?

Possibly migraine: It's possible these are related. What would make this more certain is if you had other symptoms of migraine (throbbing head pain on one side, nausea, light sensitivity) and if you have had several episodes like this. How long do the symptoms last? That is important too. Hope that helps. ...Read more

I am taken zyrtec (cetirizine) and topomax nightly for headaches, and now I am on iron pill. I have been having a really chalky dry taste in mouth lately. Why?

Meds: Could be the medications but also could be the cause of the headaches. See neurologist if you haven't. Sometimes can be partial seizure related. I would recommend trial of sinus rinse and see if that helps. Sometimes you actually may get too dry. Iron all by itself does give you a metal dry taste. ...Read more

Carotidynia is a diagnosis of exclusion. This means that it is usually the last diagnosis after other processes have been ruled out. It is an inflammation of the carotid sheath and is painful to manipulation. ...Read more
