Persistent bad taste in mouth

0

I have allergies accompanied by sinus congestion and phlegm. I have been experiencing a bad taste in the mouth constantly and if it’s possible my sinuses that could be the underlying cause of it. It feels like I have bad breath all the time even though I’ve been told I don’t. Sometimes my tongue is sore also.

I’ve been to an ENT and a mouth specialist and still have no answers to what it could be except burning mouth syndrome, but I think it’s all due to my sinuses as I have post nasal drip due to allergic rhinitis.

Hi there,

Thanks for your question. Those who suffer from more serious cases of nasal congestion may find themselves forced to breathe through their mouth which, in and of itself, is a very unhealthy practice.

Breathing through your nose is natural, and holds many benefits. On the other hand, breathing through your mouth can leave you vulnerable to such complication as:

– Bronchitis
– Hyperventilation
– Asthma
– Exacerbates high blood pressure
– Heart disease
… and many other medical problems
