Can costochondritis also cause metallic taste in mouth and pink foamy saliva?

Answered by:

 Costochondritis Metallic taste Mouth Saliva

NO sounds like


something else altogether or unrelated. However pink foamy saliva and a metallic taste means that you are bleeding from somewhere in your mouth, throat or otherwise. If it persists I would seek medical care sooner rather than later.

you need to have the components of your diet analyzed. If you are eating too much of one thing such as yogurt, you can throw your oral bacterial makeup out of whack

Periodontal ?


Most likely you have some form of periodontal (gum) disease. Either the milder form called gingivitis, or the more advanced and serious type known as periodontitis. Less likely are an accidental cut or abrasion, or food impaction causing gum inflammation and bleeding. Even less likely are some medical problems. In any case, you need to see a dentist for an evaluation and appropriate treatment.
