Anyone experiencing

4 posts in this topic

I have another weird thing going on and am wondering whether anyone can shed any advice for this.

 

For the last few days, I have a very very salty taste in my mouth. It is driving me mad, the taste is so salty, that if feels like I have been putting tablespoons of it in my mouth. I can taste it on my lips, my skin and of course my tongue. It is almost like I can taste salt in the air.

 

I saw my cardiologist, a couple of days ago, and mentioned it to him. He has no idea why, I was having this taste. Even when I eat something sweet, it tastes salty as well.

 

Thanking you all in advance.

Hi Summer,

 

That's a good question. I'm sorry you are experiencing this and hope it resolves soon.

 

Here is a Mayo Clinic article, Salt Taste Rarely a Sign of Serious Underlying Medical Concern. You'll see it points out several possible causes, including dehydration, chemotherapy, thyroid meds, infection of salivary glands, postnasal drip, and Sjogren's. They recommend asking your doctor or dentist about it.

 

Will you let us know what you find out, or how your case gets resolved?


Warm Hugs,

Thanks Shelley, I might have to schedule an appointment with my Rheumatologist, to see if she can shed light into the situation.

Hi Shelley,

 

Should I see my Rheumatologist, or another specialist, about it possibly being Sjrogrens?. I have not changed my meds, do not have, salivary glands up or have a post nasal drip. I did have a rather large filling in one of my molars, a few weeks ago. Prior to having this salt taste, my tongue was burning alot also.

 

Thanks

 

Summer
