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.

Re: Bad taste in mouth all the time, stomach problems.

I am new to this board but not to stomach problems. I do know that you can have acid reflux withoud having severe heartburn. Is the bad taste in your mouth similar to a "metal" taste. I believe that this can be a form of reflux. I have acid reflux and meds weren't helping. I developed a hiatal hernia and had surgery. I don't have the same symptoms of reflux as I did before, but I do still have them and sometimes get that "taste" in my mouth.

Don't feel crazy about asking your doc about this. Do try and find a good one that will listen to you.

Feel better soon!
