What can cause a metal taste in your mouth?


Answer by  Travis404607 (3916)

A metallic taste in the mouth can be an indicator of a cavity, indigestion, or something more severe, such as heavy metal toxicity in the bloodstream. There could also be an infection on the tongue, which often causes certain "tastes" in the mouth. The back of the tongue is a common place for infections.

Blood can cause a metal taste in your mouth; even a small amount is very noticable. Also certain medications can cause a metallic taste in a person's mouth. If you have recently been prescribed a new medication or dosage I recommend that you inform your doctor of this symptom.

I have had many CAT scans done with the use of contrast. Many times it is given in an I.V. that has been placed in a vein in your hand or wrist area. Then a Dr. will slowly put contrast through the I.V. and you will start to taste metal in your mouth, as well as warmth throughout the body.

You could have a bad tooth that is causing it. Or one of the fillings you might have could be causing it. Or if you drink out of cans often that happens too.

Metal taste in my mouth takes place when i take syrups and iron tablets. The syrups such as Dexorange, and other vitamin syrups which i don't remember. The iron tablets such as Autirin which i had used earlier.
