Cold minty feeling in mouth

Anyone ever come across this.......?

I have had on and off for a couple of weeks now a what can only be described as a 'minty fresh' type feeling in my mouth - as if I've been chewing gum (which I don't) or have just brushed my teeth. Nothing seems to make it go away - but it does so itself after a while....then will come back again. I don't know what seems to be causing it or what it might be.

I've googled (of course) and suggests it may be reflux related - not sure if I'd expect any other symptoms but don't seem to have anything bar the cold mouth.

Has anybody else had this? I live overseas and don't have a GP yet (and prob couldn't explain it well in the language too...) so was just wondering if I ought to do something about it or if it's likely to be irritating but not serious.

Have you started using a moutwash with chlorhexidine in it? I started using Corsodyl recently and found I had a minty/numb feeling in my mouth for a couple of days afterwards. Might not be that, but thought I'd check!

No - haven't started anything new / changed toothpaste or anything to account for the mintyness which is why it's a bit odd!
