I've been struggling with constant mucous and a horrible taste in the back of my throat since mid-December. First, I was attributing it to Prednisone, but I have been off of it for a month. I have been on two rounds of Flagyl, so I though maybe it was that, but I finished my second round of antibiotics on Sunday, and the taste/mucous is still there. I take omeprazole daily. I do burp a lot, but I am not having traditional heartburn, so it doesn't seem refllux related. I also did a two week course of Diflucan, a few weeks ago, because my doc said that I had some yeast on my upper endoscopy in Sept., and it may have been that. I also even tried antihistimines to see if that would work. So I am at a loss. Nothing seems to be working, and it's driving me a bit crazy. My GI doesn't know what it is. He said to wait awhile, and if it doesn't go away, then he can do another upper scope, but I don't know how useful that would be. I'm wondering if it just takes awhile for the Flagyl icky taste to wear off. I'm feeling much better overall. Any ideas for something else for me to try??? Thanks
