Re: Metallic taste in Mouth
I agree with midwest1 about if that is your only symptom, I have had the metal taste in my mouth a couple of times when hyperthyriod, I don't have metal fillings or any fillings, as matter of fact, but the symptom which always came with this metal taste was chest pains, racing heart 140 bpm and over, intolerence to heat not actually feeling hot, but would have a mini heat stroke and get very sick. This happened in Arizona both times the temp was over 114 and I was hyper on arrival at the hospital. They called it thyroid storm and kept me there for 3 days both times. There are other conditions which cause the metal taste, some of them just dental conditions, also GERD though these to have other symptoms, so I would not worry too much if that was my only symptom.
