I am back in the hope that someone else out there has any idea what this could be. I am still really struggling with this after a month of symptoms.
Still getting the odd sensations and taste which I am aware of as soon as I wake up. It is NOT a 'morning mouth' taste, definitely a chemical/mint taste. (Even that doesn't describe it properly. its sort of like when you get some chemical substance on your tongue at the dentist, or a horrible medicine. It leaves a tingling, almost numb sensation in your mouth. It's almost like that. It just tastes wrong - like poison) Anyway it is not too bad until I eat or drink and then the taste is very strong for a while. Cold, menthol sensation in the nose, roof of the mouth, gums, throat. Stinging eyes like menthol vapour.
I have been to the doctor who thinks it is sinus, and have taken a course of Amox in case it is sinus infection. Has not done a thing to help.
Am still rinsing with Neilmed bottle and saline. Only helps for a while (replaces the 'taste' with the taste of salt and soda until it wears off!)
Inside nostrils and end of nose really tingles at times.
Edit: Forgot to mention I sometimes get a very distinct acrid burning/stale tobacco taste at the back of my throat as well! I stopped smoking ten years ago, but I can remember that taste.
What the heck is going on?
This is driving me INSANE.
