Metallic Taste in Mouth and Burning on Tongue
I am experiencing a metallic taste in my mouth and a burning on my tongue. I tried the 1/2 tsp of baking soda in 8 oz of distilled water upon rising and at bedtime. I have been doing this for 1 week. The metallic taste is gone but now I have a sour, poison-like taste and the burning still exists. Testing saliva with ph strips measures about 6.-6.2 now. I cut back on baking soda to once per day due to tingling lips. Am I doing something wrong since this is not working well? Should I be taking Vitamin C or something else? My doctor told me to eliminate tomatoes for one month. I really don't have heartburn or stomach problems. Please respond. Thanks.
