Over the last several month I have notice a chemical or metallic taste in my mouth. I especially notice it when eating. The only thing I noteable have changed is I drink coffee more regularly. I use to drink 1-2 cup a week now I drink 1-2 cups per day. Do you have any suggestions as to what can cause the taste in my mouth?

Thank you for your reply.

Hello and welcome..are you any medication.? as this can cause various mouth tastes as from mettalic to salty sensations in the mouth through the saliva. Have you been ill recently or a history of diabeties in the family? Ive never heard of coffee causing this but my advise to you is any worries at all regards this needs checking out by someone medical. In my own experience of the salty taste its causes by my medication of morphine patches and amytriptelene..the metallic i also experienced through anti imflamatories like voltarol. Our bodies all react to lots of different things maybe even to our diet or a routine gum infection when experienced from when eating..I wish you luck but do watch for other replies as its not uncommon. I hope maybe ive given you a few ideas that maybe never crossed your mind.
