I'm not sure why this has happened to you guys--and to me--but I did find a 'fix' that works pretty well. Mine seems to "sit" on the back of my tongue--and it tastes EXACTLY like I put an aspirin on the back of my tongue, and it dissolved in my mouth!  Except that taste is there all the time--no matter what I eat--I kept drinking milk, antacids, etc--no help. You'd think sweets would make it go away but this makes it WORSE--no sweets! My dentist friend said brush your teeth extra good, then gargle with an antiseptic mouthwash. Wait a few minutes, then either dip your toothbrush in and brush the back of your tongue or swab it with cider vinegar (you can just put it in your mouth and gargle it around, too). It doesn't taste great, but to my amazement, it took away most (no all) of the bitter taste. And now it's the next day, and it's still not as bad as before. Worth a try...

I would also suggest getting your blood sugar levels test. I am diabetic type 1 and I notice that when my blood sugars run high I get a bad taste in my mouth also

I have the same thing! I am online looking for answers. I have had pine nuts every day this week. I hope that's all it is.

after trying all that you have tried, you may need to see a dentist to make sure you do not have an issue with a tooth.  I know some drug stores have these little hard candy like things that help to increase moisture in the mouth.  I have found orbit gum has helped me.  God bless.

Thank you to all!
I do visit the dentist regularly, so I do not think that is it.
I do not think that I have acid reflux, but I will definitely go to the dentist or the doc. Thanks again, you guys are great!

I have allergies and also will have a bitter taste in my mouth for days.  I take an antihistimine from my doctor To help with my allergies and this will help take away the bad taste.  Good luck.

Thank you!
It has been 5 days, still bitter as ever!
Went to the dentist, nothing wrong.
Called my doc and he put me on Zantac for acid reflux.
I feel helpless.

I recently noticed the same thing...bitter taste on the back of my tongue.  After reading many posts online, I have connected it to eating pine nuts (of all things!).  I had a handful a few days ago, and noticed the bitter taste when I ate them, but thought nothing of it.  The last couple of days I have noticed a bitter taste on the back of my tongue.  Brushing my tongue, drinking lots of water, eating whatever -- it still tasted bitter afterward.  Last night I gargled with a 50/50 mix of water and peroxide.  I did this twice.  This seemed to help somewhat.  I will do it again today.  I also read that it should go away after a few days.  Others posted that there could be something more serious wrong, so consult your dentist or doctor for treatment.

I got that too right now. It's only a slight bitter taste that I can taste when I'm eating something or for a while after I eat something.
I didn't eat breakfast or lunch today, I'm thinking having a lot of acid in my stomach right now might have something to do with it.
Another site said that it can be caused upper Gastrointestinal problems, by a virus infection or by a pancreas problem.

GodlovesU has a good point. A decaying tooth can definitely leave you with a bitter taste in your mouth, but also it could be a problem originating from your stomach. For example, acid reflux, even if you do not suffer from any symptoms, or if you tend to over eat. Also if you have intestinal problems, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Hope this helps.
