Super strong metallic taste after Lyme Disease treatment?

Posted , 1 user is following.

Hi all,

I had an EM rash and recently had 3 weeks worth of doxycycline treatment. I didn't experience too many side effects whilst taking the tablets but shortly afterwards I developed a really strong metallic taste in my mouth, I've had this now for 3 weeks and it's there all the time - has anyone else had this?

It's difficult to tell about other symptoms as I was already sick - mostly with abdominal pain/burning which was treated as ulcers with 1 week of clarithromycin/amoxicillin/omeprazole, except this didn't actually work. The bite was most likely several months earlier than the rash (simply due to the position on top of my foot and the last occasion I had worn shoes where this area would have been exposed). I am wondering whether the abdominal issues were actually Lyme Disease all along. What I have now is just this super strong metallic taste and a burning feeling on the surface of my abdomen (at the front, symmetrically on both sides, like it's under the skin) and a lot of tiredness.

It's the metallic taste that is worrying me the most, does anyone know if it is a Lyme Disease or is this something completely different?

Thanks in advance!
