Constant Bad Taste In Mouth With Geographic Tounge.

Recommended Posts

I constantly have a bad taste in my mouth and I can't relive it with anything. Brushing my teeth helps but only for so long. I am pretty sure it is from acid reflux. When it's really bad I get the patches on my tounge that are like geographical tounge. Any suggestions on how to keep this bad taste to a minimum or how to stop it from happening? Anyone else get this?

Just been looking into this. What struck me, was the fact you said brushing your teeth helped. From what I've learned, certain toothpastes (usually ones with additives, such as whiteners) are to be avoided. It made me think of certain food allergies like MSG headaches, where a little of what made you ill in the first place, can actually cause the headache to improve - temporarily; such is the nature of the beast. Perhaps the toothpaste is actually causing the geographic tongue??? Just a thought

I had no idea that there was such a thing as "geographic tongue". Thanks for helping me learn something new!

Just throwing some ideas out.

• Get your teeth cleaned if your are due and ask your dentist if you have gingivitis (can cause bad breath).

• Get yourself some natural dental products that are fluoride free (toothpaste and mouthwash). If nothing else, it can't hurt to remove the toxins that are in most brands and eliminate them as a possibility.

• If you know you have GERD, how about keeping a food diary that may identify what makes it worse? You might be able to tell if you have additional food allergies or if certain types of foods are at the root (fatty, fried, raw). And I wouldn't overlook eating too much of a food that is supposed to be good for you when trying to identify a culprit. Someone else mentioned an idea in relation to food diaries that I loved, cycling through different foods for a few days at a time rather than cutting lots of them all at once then adding them in again. We need variety in order to stay healthy. And I wouldn't overlook cycling some organic foods in there as well. You could be reacting to something in a pesticide used on your favorite food rather than the food itself. Skip alcohol too.

• Have you been tested for vitamin deficiencies? If so, supplement those needed, get them rechecked, and repeat ... for the rest of your life. Everyone with a gluten allergy of any sort should be paying attention to these. 

• If you take any sort of medication, look into the side effects, not just those on the bottle or handout that came with them, but actually do a search on the internet for your medication + your problem to see if other individuals are also reporting something the drug companies are not.

But I'm just shooting in the dark. I hope someone else has better answers for you.
