Just wondering if anyone has ever had this as a symptom?  I just read something that list metalic or salty taste in mouth as a symptom of LD.
Thanks, KO
2001 symptoms started:
Tingling in fingers and toes both sides, not tested at that time for LD
2007 Summer tested pos. WB, diagnosed with LD, tested neg for co-infections thru Igenex
Abx - Doxy 100mg 2x/day for 3 weeks (before diagnosis)
Amoxicillin 1gm 2x/day for 1 month
Amoxicillin 1gm 3x/day with Probenecid 500mg 2x/day  5 months 
Currently on Dr. Zhang's protocol stopped Zhang's after 6 months symptoms returned.  Started Buhner's protocol May 2009

Hmm. I have that, but I'm pretty sure it's from Biaxin. But I see you're not on Biaxin. Does Doxy have a similar side-effect?

KO-LD, I have had the salty taste in my mouth and it comes and goes, but one time it was very strong for the whole day. I have also had a lot of metalic taste in my mouth. But just figured it was the meds.
Bit 1972: Acute and chronic tonsillitis, UTI, miscarraige, appendicitis, hypoglycemia,  chronic neck pain w/ crushed vertibrae, chronic severe back pain, mitral valve prolapse, depression, resolution?
Bit Mother's Day 2007: Lyme, Babesia microti, hypothyroidism, EBV, HHV6, Parvovirus B19, low adrenals &misc other hormones, depression, anxiety, more of the above.
What don't these nasty bugs cause? 
CD57= 60, so we're in pretty good shape.

RD, I had this (metalic taste) long before I was diagnosed.  The salty taste is something I am getting I think it's from the Andrographis.  I did read that a metalic taste is a symptom of LD and I had never heard that before.
