My mouth feels and tastes weird!

This started today. The insides of my cheeks feel funny, and taste kind of like metal. It's getting worse where my whole mouth tastes weird, my tongue feels funny, and my teeth hurt like they do when I eat an apple and have to rinse out my mouth before I touch my teeth together (I don't know if this happens to anyone else, so it might not make sense).
Does anyone know what this could be? It's really grossing me out.

Re: My mouth feels and tastes weird!

Have you seen a dentist lately?

Metallic taste can indicate a metallic filling coming out or even decay of a tooth. If you have an abscess, you can have odd feelings in other teeth as well as the one that is affected and if the abscess is swelling, it can affect your cheeks.

Let us know what you find out.

Re: My mouth feels and tastes weird!

thanks for the reply...
I don't have any fillings, and I don't taste metal unless I touch my tongue to my cheeks or gum area... and all my teeth feel strange, more like sensitivity than pain.
I looked into oral thrush a bit because i'm on antibiotics, and it sounds similar but I don't have any actual white lesions in my moth like they said was a characteristic of Thrush...

Re: My mouth feels and tastes weird!

Could be a sign of salivary gland infection or a zinc and/or vitamin B12 deficiency. Kidney disease can cause an icky metallic taste so bad you lose your appetite.

Many meds can cause metallic taste: antithyroid drugs, Capoten, griseofulvin, lithium, penicillamine and some chemo meds.

Ok, thanks!
I think I will go to the Walk-In at lunch time. It's not as bad as it was last night, but it's still there, and I also feel like I might have a fever.

Re: My mouth feels and tastes weird!

Yes I have this too, I was sure it was from taking a D3 for the first, but now it's come back without the D. I think I need to go to the Dr.? I'm not sure what it is?
