What could be the reason for the metallic taste in my mouth?

Nishka asked...

I have had a metallic taste in my mouth for eight months now. I have previously slipped and fell on ice hitting my head quite severly. Could this be the reason for the taste and is there a cure?

Expert Answer

Please see your doctor to discuss this concern. There are several things that can cause a lingering taste or odor in the mouth including gum or dental conditions, medications, diet, eating habits, and intestinal conditions. It's possible your head injury played a role. You need to see a medical doctor for an examination and diagnosis. Don't leave this up to guess work.
