I experienced a metallic taste and metallic breath for about 2 months after first going gluten-free. My doctor at the time noticed this and ran blood tests for something called "ketosis" which is a deficiency of some kind. It's something followers of the Atkins diet can sometimes get, and the celiac disease diet is somewhat similar, so I can see how that can happen. I was negative for that and eventually my weird taste and breath subsided. So, it may benefit you to mention this to your dr. and see if you're ketotic. Also, make sure you're not having any dental problems like maybe a loose fitting crown; that can cause the taste you're experiencing as well.
