    Is it normal to have a metallic taste in your mouth before migraines or headaches? I am in the middle of my second migraine cycle and this is a new symptom for me. The metallic taste started a day before my first headache and has occured on and off throughout this cycle which has lasted 4 days now. I am seeing the doctor tomorrow but was curious if anyone else has experienced this strange taste with their migraines.

    awoods,

     

    I'm sorry you're having Migraines, but very thankful you're able to get in so quickly to see your doctor. What did he/she say?

     

    A strange taste in the mouth can be part of a Migraine attack for some people. It can also be related to the medicines they take for their attacks. Your doctor can help you firgure out what's going on. 

     

    Do you have a diagnosis of Migraine with, or without aura?

      Hi Ellen,

       

      Thanks for the response. The doctor did feel that the taste was part of my Migraine attack, especially since I hadn't yet taken anything when it started. I have been diagnosed with Migraine with Aura as I often see squilly silver lines and blurred spots before my headaches. It was a roller coaster of a week but eventually after a few does of imitrex and naproxen I am doing much better now.

       

      Thanks,

      Amanda
