Pathology
In brief: More history
Usually "dysgeusia" with an odd metallic taste is from taking medications (even calcium carbonate) or "just happens" & is never explained.
I trust you are otherwise well & do not have occupational exposure to lead, mercury, or cadmium. Try running floss across your tongue, and using plastic utensils.
