That's relative: That would be subjective if we are talking about food. Medically, it would be a taste that you personally felt was not normal, or one that was anoying, or of sudden onset and persistant despite the absense of food or drink.
I've had an awful bad taste in mouth for 4 years after living in damp conditions. It's ruined my life in many ways. Tried everything.
See dentist: See dentist. You may have dental disease responsible for your sympotms.
Dehydration? Meds?: Drugs that dehydrate can cause this, not drinking enough h2o can, and medications which cause dry mouth (and their are many), all encourage the growth of bacteria in your mouth which can makes things "not right." also, many patients on antibiotics have a metallic or earthy feel in the mouth, and things taste bad. However, this should last until you finish the course. A zinc defiency does this.
Ache: Two things come to mind: 1) you might have an infection in your gums or teeth which is causing the bad taste and aches. You need to see your dentist or 2) do you have a stomach acid issue or ulcer. I would see your physician for this. Hope that helps.
Reflux: When my patients report these symptoms to me, the most obvious thing is Reflux, which is stomach acid coming up into the esophagus. It is provoked by spicy foods, tomato sauce, garlic, carbonated drinks, chocolate, coffee, eating too large a meal, going to bed shortly after having a meal, drinking liquid before bed. Hope this helps. Check out my website CardioGauge. Com for heart health education
