Can Voltaren gel leave a bad taste in your mouth?

I haven't really heard of anyone experiencing any odd tastes in the mouth after using Voltaren Gel. Where are you applying the gel?
I have used it on my back and didn't taste anything.
I've recently been prescribed Voltaren gel for upper hamstring tendinopathy and ischial bursitis. Shortly after applying the first dosage (and at each subsequent application), I too notice a bad taste at the rear of my mouth. I applied the gel to my right buttock and upper read of right leg.
A quick net search shows a few other mentions of this side effect.
I would like to see more information. Is this an indication of a more serious side effect? Anything else I should know.
By the way, in case it's related, I am a person that notices the taste of eye drops; was told by my opthamologist that some people have a connection between eye and nose/mouth. I don't really see how this is related, but thought I would put it out there.
YES! I literally smell and taste the Voltaren gel. I also seem to feel warmer on the areas i used the gel. This particular application gave me a headache as well. I'm going to mention it to my doctor next visit.
I too have this reaction to the product: a very unpleasant taste in my mouth, but it certainly is effective in suppressing pain. Is there an alternative that doesn’t have the side effect?
I used Voltaren Emugel several hours ago and now I can taste it just like I had eaten it. I cannot get the taste out of my mouth.
