Has anyone ever had this symptom?
« on: May 29, 2014, 07:48:09 PM »
Hi everyone ,
I am a 57 yr old woman and been suffering from health anxiety for about a year now
Going from symptom to symptom and taking many tests all turning out to be ok
But now I have had a bad taste in my mouth or tongue for about a month and nothing seems to help
Brushing flossing and rinsing don't help I tried to take tums but didn't really help
Can it be acid reflux with no real stomach discomfort ?
Sometimes I get some heartburn but I am worried that it might be something more serious
There goes my worried thoughts
Anyone have this bad taste?
Any advice ?
Please post positive replies
Thanks everyone

I have had odd/altered tastes before. Things would taste bitter, sometimes metal tasting. Freaked me out, but it's most likely an anxiety thing.

This is very common with seasonal allergies.  A tongue scraper usually helps

In a worst case scenario it could be acid reflux. I've had that for years though and have been fine, so you need not worry. If you get a lot of bloating and gas, or ever feel like your pills get stuck in your throat or that your food isn't going down, that could be another indication. Anxiety can make your stomach work over time.

It's no emergency by any stretch, just mention it to your doctor. Also, try raising the head of your bed by 6 inches with wooden blocks and see if the taste is there when you wake up. I raised my bed and it's done wonders for me, and I'm also on a prescription acid reducer.

All things considered, I firmly believe you have nothing to worry about that your next doctors exam can't remedy. :) You'll be just fine.  ;D
