I am going completely nuts here! For the past 2 weeks or so I have had this HORRIBLE bitter taste in my mouth, that no matter what I have done or do, it will NOT go away! At times (not often) I get a salty taste in my mouth, but mostly it is this bitter taste and it is making me sick! I have brushed my teeth, rinsed my mouth out with Baking Soda and salt, it takes it away for a few minutes, but it comes right back and it is there all day long! I have used mouth wash, brush & scrape my tongue everytime I brush my teeth! I have been drinking Orange Juice, lots of water (which Water tastes so nasty right now because of this)
I have gone to the Doctors & Hospital for this! At first they said it could be Thrush, put me on medicine for that, then was told it is not thrush, put on antibiotics for possibility of Strep throat, which it wasn't! Went back on Friday and was told to keep doing Nystatin rinse They said it could be Acid Reflux, Sinus Drainage, or just could be coming from my pregnancy!
I am so miserable and just want this horrible bitter taste that I constantly have to go away! Has anyone experienced this? If so, what helped you get rid of this??? Anyone have any ideas for me about what to do here?
In my first trimester with both pregnancies I had a yucky metal taste in my mouth, my understanding is it's due to hormones going berserk. I'm not sure what it could mean in 3rd trimester though, could be hormonal, have you been checked for anemia lately?
