headache amd metal test in the mouth
Hi, am 25 years old and for the past 2 days i've been having persistant headache which is just focused on the left side and i have a metal like taste in the mouth also just the left part of my mouth. I've been taking painkillers but only help for a short while and the headache returns. I've never had this before and am a bit worried especially with the metal like taste in my mouth. Please advice on what this could be and steps i must take.
Thank you.

Odd, “metallic” tastes are not uncommon with a variety of medical problems and a variety of medicines, including painkillers.  The more important of your symptoms is the headache.  Such a persistent headache could have a benign cause, could be a migraine headache or could be a sign of a more serious problem, such as a leaking blood vessel.  You would be wise to go to your nearest, large emergency room to have this checked-out and should do so, without delay on the off-chance that the cause of your headache might be serious.

Good luck.
