Welcome to Just Answer...

Sorry to hear about your problem...

Well, there are many reason for sour taste including;

  • Bacterial overgrowth
  • Post nasal drip (which usually occurs in sinus infection)
  • Gastroesophageal Reflux
  • Zenker's Diverticulum
  • Vitamin Deficiencies
  • Dental infections and gum diseases
  • Diabetes
  • Chronic respiratory infections

You can try to control this problem by maintaining a good oral hygiene, floss, and mouth wash...

However, it is better to see your doctor for a comprehensive clinical examination discussing the above mentioned possibilities, which will direct further management plan...

I hope this answers your question...

Kindest Regards...
