Bad taste in mouth all the time, stomach problems.
I'm having stomach problems of late, pain and diarrhea. I've had several tests and am diagnosed with IBS.
Well, I have this problem that my GP basically ignored when I mentioned it. I have a constant bad taste in my mouth. Have had it since December. Before that I was having occasional coughing for months and a tickle in my throat, so my doc gave me Pepcid. I started taking the Pepcid to see if it would help with the bad taste, but it doesn't make a difference. I don't have heartburn, so I don't think it is acid reflux.
The bad taste started when I had a really bad few days of diarrhea. I'm wondering if this is a virus, or possibly even a parasite. Don't know how to approach my doc. with this question without him thinking I'm crazy.
Anyone else have this problem? It's driving me crazy. I feel nauseated all the time and like there is a constant sicky sweet taste in the back of my mouth.
