Sour taste in mouth, difficulty inhaling. Using nasal drops. Treatment? - Online Doctor Chats
Dr. XXXXXXX here
How can I help you?
Hi XXXXXXX . Good afternoon
My self... XXXXXXX
Yes, XXXXXXX .. Proceed with your query.
I am asking this on behalf of my Mother... She is of age 55 staying with me in bangalore
She is feeling sour taste in his mouth frequently...
she is feeling the same mostly entire day....
while eating she can experience all tastes but after again few minutes
she is feeling the same...
here what i mean is sour taste means exact opposite taste of sweet...
i am not sure i explained the problem or not but this is the case
she don't have diabetes, high blood pressure... recently some 2 months back she was gone through these two checks
Is she on any regular medications?
i even don't know what sinusitis, congestion means...
and she has a problem with inhaling some times so she uses inhaling drops frequently at bed time
and we did not check thyroid check ?
Let me brief you.
However since you mentioned, she uses some drops (nasal drops), I presume she has some running nose/blocked nose or sinus problems.
In the presence of nasal condition such as sinus problems, allergic rhinnitis, nasal polyps or any other nasal infection
one can experience such taste disturbances.
Similarly a person who suffers from gastritis/reflux esophagitis, bitter taste can be associated complaint.
Hence, though your mother doesn't have a serious pathology, she needs evaluation to determine the cause.
Once the pre-existing cause is determined, treating it will relieve her symptoms.
ok... just googled congestion means related to heart... and recently we checked ecg also which is also fine.
Nasal congestion - refers to blocked nose or simply stuffy nose.
Do not be worried.
Your mother doesn't suffer a serious medical illness.
She can visit an ENT surgeon to confirm if she has a nasal problem and gastric problem.
Treating the cause can be not that difficult; and she should feel better after the treatment.
If I am not clear, can I explain this over a phone call.
ooh thank you very much doctor... so finally
problem is filtered to two things nasal/gastric
I think we can discuss this better over phone.
Can I speak and clarify about it.
Please confirm your phone number.
I hope I have clear your doubts.
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
