What causes an effervescent taste in the mouth?

I've been tasting an effervescent taste in my saliva when I chew. Its like carbonation from soda pop in a sense. Not on any medications besides blood pressure medicine that I've taken for a few years. Once in awhile I'll use ibuprofen or aleve for pain. That's all .. Thank you.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Effervescent taste in mouth can be due to infection in mouth and throat while at time salivary gland infection can also be a cause.
Also high sugar levels can be a cause.
It can also be due to nerve related problems.
So it is advisable to once consult an oral physician and get evaluated.
For now chew sugar free chewing gum and gargle with antiseptic mouthwash.
Drink plenty of water.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I can taste blood in my mouth when i clear my throat but I don t see any in my spit. I have seen an ENT but it was a year ago. He scoped my larynx and everything and said everything looked fine. I do have drainage and I ve been coughing. I ve had blood in my mouth before but I am not the best at brushing my teeth so I ve always assumed that was the reason.

I had a case of extremely dry mouth and throat after starting wellbutrin two weeks ago. I am also a smoker. The dry mouth is better but now I am finding it a little difficult to swallow and my tongue is getting over some swollen taste buds. I am worried and think I may need a throat scope. What do these symptoms sound like to you?
