• Do you take sleeping pills or any sleep aids by any chance?
  • have a dentist check your fillings
  • Ones gums can bleed in the night. Dried blood smells and tastes like copper
  • I agree w. the could be your fillings ready to come out if they are older ones when they used metal to fill cavities. If you are taking certain medications, like Lunesta, they will leave your breath w/ a metallic taste. Also, you might want to get checked by your Dr. for diabetes. I was a paramedic for many yrs & one of the symptoms was a metallic smell/taste.
  • A metallic taste can be due to many factors. But the most common causes of a metallic taste are: Medications such as some antibiotics, prenatal vitamins and antidepressants, as well as drugs used to treat high blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis and kidney stones Oral problems, including oral infections such as gingivitis or periodontitis, tooth infections, and poor oral hygiene Sometimes the cause of a metallic taste can't be determined. In many cases, the problem goes away on its own after several months or longer. Proper oral hygiene can help, including regularly brushing your teeth and brushing and scraping your tongue. Done properly, dental restorations — such as fillings and inlays — are rarely the cause a metallic taste. Or Diabetes can also cause you have this taste too in the very early stages. I think for your peace of mind I would call DR and make appt. and get a check up, better safe than sorry.
  • I used to have the same taste and smell. (and I am not being all preachy here) When I stopped eating meat, it went away. Later I learned that my liver does not process toxins well, so I built up a high level of metals in my body. My doctor told me that being a vegetarian is the thing that saved my life. You may want to get a blood panel done.
