Tasting blood in mouth after running. Cause?

Hi, I m a 19 year old girl. I am 5,7 and weigh 137lbs. When I run, even short distances, (Five minutes of running) I tend to start tasting blood in my mouth. After running, I still keep that taste and I just feel terrible. I exercise three times a week at least and I d like to think I m in alright shape. What is this taste and is it dangerous? Andrea

welcome to Healthcare Magic.

Following are possible common causes for your complaint:
-Dehydration leading to dry mouth during running.
-Vitamin deficiency
-Concurrent use of some medicine leading to metallic taste in mouth.

If you do not have other symptoms like weakness, dizziness or blood in mouth, then in my opinion there is no need to worry currently.

Wish you good health and all the best.
