I am sorry to bring this up because it's not pleasant, but I have to ask because I'm not sure if this is something to do with stopping smoking, or if it's related to my trip to the dentist today.
Okay the trip to the dentist was an initial check up - the broken tooth is actually a broken filling of a broken tooth so she gave it a little file to smooth it down and we've make another appointment. Other than that she poked around a bit as in a typical check up and that was that.
about 3 hours later I was drinking a coffee at work - this was my 2nd cup as i'd had one when I'd got to work. I was 1/2 way down my 2nd one when I suddenly experienced this extremely foul taste in my mouth - I just cannot describe it, it just tastes disgusting! Then it stopped again. I blamed the milk although I know that it was fine. This taste has hit me intermittently all afternoon and is still doing it tonight. I can start drinking and it's fine, and then suddenly it hits again and lasts a few minutes then disappears. It's horrible.
Has anyone else experienced this or is it just me, in which case I wonder if it's the poking about that the dentist did. At the moment it seems to start right at the back of the left hand side of my teeth but also feels like there is some phlem or something in the back of my throat but there is nothing there! Just this horrible foul taste!
If anyone knows anything about this please let me know, nothing seems to help, mouthwash, mints it just appears when it wants to!
