I have had no pain anywhere, my teeth do need attending too thou. This has been ongoing for the last week, I am 53 years old and never had this issue. I do get hay fever, sinus, asthma, I sleep with a c pap, as I have sleep aphna. No issues with anything else. I am a little slack on drinking my water but try and have some each day. Years ago I had a peptic Ulcer. I do get some reflux at times and feel full after a meal, got any ideas to pin point my problem thanks glenda

Dentist 's  Response

Thanks for asking the query,

Salty taste in mouth can be due to GIT disturbances and post nasal sinus drip.
I would suggest you to visit to an Gasteroenterologist and ENT specialist and get the checkup done.
Take necessary medications to keep the conditions under control.

Maintain a good oral hygiene, clean the tongue gently with a tongue scraper, or a soft bristle toothbrush, use antiseptic mouthwash gargles twice daily.

Hope this helps out.
