i have suffered for a long while from an either real or imagined bad taste in my mouth. I chew gum, brush my teeth, use mouthwash, but it's still there! sometimes it's not so bad but when I am worrying about it it's worse. I've been to the dentists because I started to get sore teeth recently and I mentioned the taste in my mouth but she said she couldn't see anything wrong. I have braces by the way, so I am going to the orthodontists about the tooth pain and will mention the bad taste again. but I want the opinions of other people, why is this happening and how on earth can I combat it! I want to be able to talk to people without covering my mouth in fear! I want to be able to make out with boys without being so scared my mouth tastes gross! Please can I have some advice cause this is really getting me down now that I have a boyfriend and I want to kiss him and stuff but I'm way too scared.
