METALLIC TASTE

Patient

Q: For the last 2 weeks i have had a metallic taste in my mouth. Its 24 hrs 7 days. I just had a baby 6 weeks ago but continue to take prenatal vits, as well as a chewable vitamin C every morning. I have 2 temporary fillings in my mouth. I have not added any new meds and have not changed my diet. I am curious what this could be caused from and what i should do to get rid of it. Its horrible! i brush my teeth a million times a day to try to get rid of this but nothing is helping. Even water tastes like it.Please help...
