Brief Answer:
acid reflux can be a more common cause

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for the query.

The more problable cause for your problem can be acid reflux and use of a proton pump inhibitor should help. Dietary changes like avoiding spicy and fried food, alcohol, excessive tea coffee will help in this.

Stress can be a factor and so can thyroid disease be but your problem is occasional. Still getting a thyroid function test is usually required if there some associated symptoms of thyroid disease like weight loss or gain, loss or increased appetite or sleep.

Simple throat allergy can cause this and anti allergic drugs can be use for few days.

So, if proton pump inhibitors don't help, see an ENT and the further investigations can be done.

Feel free to ask another query.

Brief Answer:
rule out sinusitis

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.

Reflux can cause metallic taste if dental examination is normal but a one problem should not be there.

A one side problem should be examined for sinusitis also.

So an ENT examination should help in clearing many things.

Feel free to ask another query.
