I am happy to have found this site and find that I am not the only one suffering with this problem. I have had a salty taste in my mouth for 8 months now. It started with a sinus infection. Antibiotics cleared up the infection, but the taste has remained since that time. I have always consumed a lot of water each day, so I know it is not dehydration. I have been to my family physician, dentist, oral surgeon and neurologist and none have been able to help me. The neurologist took an MRI and EEG stating that sometimes strokes, tumors, seizures, and virual infections can cause this problem. All of my test came back normal. He wanted to start me on a seizure medication anyway, stating this might help the problem. After being on the medication for only two days, it made me nauseous and I had to quit taking it. The nerologist states that it is not really a salty taste in the mouth, but is the part of the brain where the senses is sending out a false signal. I'm not sure if I believe that or not. I have been doing some research on the Internet and have found there is a specialist called a Otolaryngologist that deals with taste problems. I am going to look to see if we have one in the area where I live. I am also considering taking the Ginkgo Biloba herb to see if it might help. If I find anything that helps me, I will be sure to pass it on. I hope we can all find something to help us with this problem. No one can understand how annoying it is until you live with it.
