Bad Taste

I have had a bad taste in my mouth for 2 years. Thinking it was GERD from taking an increased dose of Fosamax, I consulted a GI doctor, had an endoscopy, which showed erythema in lower 1/3 of esophagus and mild gastritis. I've taken high doses of Priolosec, Nexium, Zantac, Aciphex, Carafate.  Nothing makes the taste go away. Certain foods make the taste worse - chocolate, tomatoes.

Checked with dentist - no periodontal problems causing the taste.

I do have a chronic postnasal drip - should  I see if my sinuses are causing the bad taste?

rude question, but do you also have fould breath?  You see, to me it seems you have ruled out physical findings in the oral cavity. If there is nothing apparently wrong within the oral cavity, and no foul odor....

I'm thinking you may want to consult with a neurologist.
