I have a copper taste in my mouth, what does that mean?

Might mean your gums are bleeding a bit, make sure to floss and brush your teeth well.

It can mean that you have a bacterial infection in your mouth, you have an allergy to something you ate or you have taken medicine like antibiotics. I think you should consult a doctor, just to make sure that it is nothing serious.

Your gums are probably bleeding a little or your water has kind of a coppery taste

it may mean that your mouth is bleeding. think, have you bitten your tongue, cheeks or lips lately? did it make you tear up? well then, maybe that's why.

I get that when I have a sinus infection. The sinus will drain into your mouth when you either blow your nose or try to get the congestion out in other ways, and the bleeding coming from the sinus irritation or the infection will give you a coppery taste
