bad taste in mouth

bondagio Community Member June 06, 2007
  • hey! since my doctor is very unhelpful about acid reflux, i thought i'd come to the people who'd know more; people who've been there themselves. I was wondering if anybody else has a horrible taste in their mouth. i can't explain it at all, but i call it my 'acid mouth'...it's absolutely revolting and no amount of water can wash the taste away!

    Hello!


    That bad taste in your mouth is a common symptom of reflux. I don't know if it can be totally avoided but treatment should decrease this annoying problem. Acid and stomach contents coming up the esophagus and into the mouth may be called silent reflux, backwashing or regurgitation. You may want to google these terms for further info.

Acid and stomach contents coming up the esophagus and into the mouth may be called silent reflux, backwashing or regurgitation. You may want to google these terms for further info.


    Typical treatments such as medication to reduce acid, eating small meals, eating more frequently, chewing slowly, avoiding movement and exercise after a meal and limiting the intake of trigger foods can help.Carbonated beverages and caffiene will allow the lower esophageal sphincter to open and let acid escape. It might help to revisit the treatment plan with your doctor and make sure the acid suppression is working. Then try experimenting with your diet and eating habits to see if you can reduce the symptoms. Does it always happen after dinner? at night? am? Keep track of it and see if there is a pattern.


    Bring this data to your doctor too.


    Good luck.

    I was recently diagnosed with Acid Reflux and had an MRI done drinking some horrible white liquid and the doctor watched as it was consumed, on a monitor.  Not only did I have instant acid reflux while drinking it, but he also noticed I have a small blockage in my throat...some sort of protrustion.  I was prescribed Pantoprazole Sodi Ter 40 mg and I dont really see any change with it,  But this morning, I woke up with this VILE...and I mean VILE taste in my mouth that almost made me throw up.  Feces probably would have tasted better, but I swear it tasted like I had eaten something DEAD...not just dead, but rotting.  Since I had some V8 juice in the frig, I figured if tomato juice works taking away skunk spray, why wouldn't it work for this taste, since V8 Juice has tomatoes in it.  I brushed my teeth vigorously at first, hoping that would help, but the taste lingered.  The V8 seemed to help.  I know there is acid in V8 because of the tomatoes in it, but I was desperate and only drank a small glass.  I've never gotten this taste before and it was so bad...I can't even find proper words to describe it.

    I had this same issue with the salt. It was crazy. It was coming out of the roof of my mouth and if I brought spit up by force it was incredibly salty. I drank tons of water to combat the thirst that this produced. Most times this helped but I was literally drinking gallons.The acid reflux would happen on and off. Then I started getting these horrible stomach burning pains. I went to the dr and was diagnosed with gerd/acid reflux, was given pantoprozole, but that didn't help. I kept dealing with the issues for quite awhile. I then stopped working so I couldn't just run to the dr anymore, which probably is the reason why I found more info online about this. I know overtime the acid probably created an ulcer which I did tell the dr at one point I probably had, but anyway every now and again the ulcer would act up. I think it was because my stomach wasn't handling the acid well. So I found a site where someone was mentioning things that helped with their ulcer and they said zantac worked but it caused them to be dizzy and tired. So I got zantac and got better instantly. For some reason and this may not be related or could be but  eating skittles helped also lol. I know it's strange but I'm thinking it balanced something in my stomach that was off. But the zantac is what has really helped because I can feel it controlling the acid. The crazy burning in my stomach when away and all the gurgling sounds and all the weird gas issues. It was night and day. My mouth even feels healthier because it doesn't have to try and get rid of acid through my mouth which is probably what is happening when your mouth gets  really salty. Don't ignore that problem. I had drs who did. It means the acid is getting out of control.  I hope zantac helps you. I also wasn't able to sleep well due to the stomach pain and finally after getting zantac I was able to finally sleep and I don't feel all tired and nauseated anymore. The only thing with zantac is it gives me  mild headaches but it's so worth it compared to the stomach pain.

      You can buy zantac over the counter so no prescription is needed. I just want to mention what I tried that did or didn't work prior to using zantac.

Stool test revealed H-pylori infection (bacteria in the stomach lining). Endoscopy revealed Gastritis (inflamation of the stomach lining). For now Doctor gave me Protonix (proton pump inhibitor) and Zantac (acid blocker). I am pretty sure he will prescribe antibiotics for H-Pylori infection. Seeing my doctor on January 24th. Will know more.

I am not sure what type of ulcer it is as of now but they believe it's caused by a stomach infection. I am awaiting to see if the doctor wants me to do a endoscopy, which is a thin tube with a camera on the end that is inserted through my mouth, then passed into my esophagus and stomach to make sure the ulcer is benign. It is good to know what caused the pain but I will fill much better after this next test. This sour taste is horrible. I really wish something will take it away, it takes away my appetite. I hope you found out your stomach issues.

      Frequent heartburn is not normal.

      Most people get acid reflux occasionally and Tums etc, are good for immediate neutralization of that. However, you shouldn't need, or use, them constantly.

      About 20 years ago I was in a similar situation. I was taking antacids (in my case Rennie) like sweets. Then I developed kidney stones. My doctor said it was too much calcium from the antacids, Investigating why I was taking antacids showed I had already developed Barrett's Esophagus.

       

      Under frequent attacks by acid and bile, the lining of the esophagus can undergo changes to resemble the acid protective structure of the intestines. This is intestinal metaplasia, more commonly known as Barrett's Esophagus and a potential precursor to esophageal cancer.

       

      If you are experiencing frequent acid reflux problems, you should see your doctor. He will be able to prescribe more effective acid reducing medication and may send you fro an EGD scope to check there hasn't been any permanent damage to your esophagus.

      1) Drink a glass of water to make sure you are well hydrated.

      2) Floss your teeth.

      3) With a tongue cleaner/scraper, clean the tongue area gently but sufficiently

      4) You will need to flush your nasal passageway with Nedi pot which can be purchased at any drug store.( the salt you mix comes with the Nedi pot).

      5) VERY IMPORTANT: Rinse and gargle your mouth with Diluted 3% Hydrogen Peroxide.

      (depending on the condition and sensitivity of your gums, use 1 part HP with 1 part water for people with healthy gums/mouth and for those with sensitivity/gum issues, it may be safer to use 1 part HP with 3-4 parts water for 20-30 seconds (if it tastes weird u can add a drop of peppermint).

      6) Scrape your tongue again once you have rinsed the HP water mix.

      7) Now brush your teeth with Baking soda and make sure to brush your tongue and make sure u get the back area cleaned as well.

      8) Brush your teeth with your regular toothpaste and also brush your tongue.

      7) Now rinse again with the Diluted HP mouth wash.

      8) Scrape again.

      9) Rinse mouth with your regular Mouthwash(listerine, Scope, Etc).

      10) and finally you are done make sure to drink a glass of water with AppleCiderVINEGAR. add 1-2 tablespoon of ACV to your glass of water.

       

      ALSO: Here is a green smoothy receipe to help build your immune system.

       

      You need a blender:

       

      1 cup yougurt (vanilla)

      1 cup kefir milk (peach)

      1-2 cups raw spinach

      1/4 lemon zest (shreaded lemon peel)

      1/2 cups fruit (frozen peaches)

      4 frozen cranberries

      1 T flax seeds that are ground

      sweeten with honey - Enjoy!

Mix in some honey to help soothe the throat more and calm the bad taste of stomach acid mixed with milk. Chocolate milk works well too, it's the cooling effect of a calcium rich drink that neutralizes the sting, mouth/throat swelling, acid burps, burning stomach/esopagus, etc. 

       

      For those who are lactose intolerant, I've found in testing it out that soy milk works well too, as it is often calcium fortified.

I take two gaviscon daily, and just reciently I started getting the disgusting taste of stomach acid in my mouth. Nothing seems to help, and it gives me the worst headaches. It seems like I can't eat anything without tasting the stomach acid. My tonsils are really swollen because of it, and along with the fact that I'm getting all four of my wisdom teeth out in a few days, seems like its never ending pain.

      Get some pH test strips (they have the best at that site above) to check your blood pH. Your blood is probably dangerously acidic. (The book will explain). Asimple change in diet should return you to optimum health, or at least get rid of the acid reflux. For all I know, you may have other issues.

       

      Most doctors won't be able to help you with this other than stuff you full of drugs that haven't helped.

       

      I am just a 65-year old guy with a lot of life experience, who enjoys good health through my own research, and staying away from doctors. I do get annual checkups and bloodwork done, to check my body chemistry, and if I should break a bone or slash myself open, I would definitely see a doctor. That's what they are good for. I don't take prescription meds; don't need any. Food is my medicine. YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT!

    hello freind i have exactly the same thing a taste in the back of the mouth thats always there. even if i brush my teeth use mouth wash or chuwed gum all day it will still be there. i ain't sure what it is either. it feels like it's ether some of my rotting teeth causeing the taste somehow, somthing to do with the tonsils and lymphatic system, an infection thats lasted over 2 years, or some sort of poisoning of the blood which can't be shaken off. i get that nusea aswell. i think it's starting to have nurological effects on me latly aswell because i feel like im thinking slower, always feel tierd, and having panic attacks witch i have never had before in my life. what ever it is. it isen't nice and i sware it is slowly destroying my life. i got doctors on monday with an answer to a swab test from my throut, i done a month ago. i will let you know the results freind.

      If acid reflux passes the upper esophageal sphincter (known as LaryngoPharyngeal Reflux or LPR), acid can be aspirated into the airways.

      If acid reflux passes the upper esophageal sphincter (known as LaryngoPharyngeal Reflux or LPR), acid can be aspirated into the airways.

       

      This not only can cause a smokers' type cough but also enter the mouth and nose. It can cause the bad taste in the mouth directly and weaken the enamel on teeth but the bad taste and bad breath will often come from it attcking the sinuses and causing post nasal drainage when bacteria may build up in the back of the nose to drain later.

       

      I have always suffered with this inasmuch as I am used to my mouth tasting bad. To prevent it you have to go to the cause - reducing the acid (using a proton pump inhibitor - eg. omeprazole) and reducing the reflux through the various lifestyle changes discussed elsewhere on this forum.

    I also had those sour bad taste in mouth but the doctor only gave me proton pump inhibitors. They are used to reduce acid prodcution in the stomach. On the other hand, the stainless steel taste in the mouth is probably due to an infection in the back of my throat but is gone now.

      1. 1000-2000mg mastic gum daily (I do 2000mg which is two pills in the morning and at night)  It is a cheap supplement that will address H.Pylori--just take for two months, my guess is that you will notice a difference just by taking this AND elimating the foods that irritate the GERD/heartburn condition

       

      2.  Threelac probiotic--it is a nice tasting powder that coats your throat and the BEST probiotic that I have found that really makes me feel better after taking it.  (Many probiotics don't make it to your gut and so aren't worth the money.)

       

      3.  Aloe vera juice (I think it tastes fine/nice) 4-8 oz daily (I say get organic, you can get an organic high quality bottle for $10 at iherb.com)

       

      4.  Put a brick under two of your bedposts (the two bedposts that are where your head is)

       

      5. STOP EATING anything that causes acid--coffee, soda, chocolate, ANYTHING spicy including plain pepper, NO peppermint especially gum or tea

       

      Hope this helps,

(you can find info online)  I also had a full checkup with dr just to make sure nothing serious was going on here-check for ulcers and gallbladder issues.  It took some time but things have quieted down.  Prevacid does take awhile to start working.  Good luck to my fellow sufferers!!

    Fill a small glass of orange juice or milk about 2/3 and fill the rest of the 1/3 with aloe vera juice. Drink once a day. Warning dont drink the aloe vera juice straight it is really gross, the orange juice and milk hide the taste. You will notice your acid reflex will disappear. It surely has done it with me and my aunt.

    I had made this wonderful chicken pesto pasta salad for a shower on Sunday. (actually made it Saturday)  The recipe called for toasted pine nuts.  The pine nuts tasted yummy as I tasted during the cooking process and sampled much when it was done and I got many compliments on the pasta salad at the shower. But Monday I woke up with this horrible, horrible, chemical like taste in the back of my mouth.  So after searching the internet (and you should too) I have found that I am suffering from "pine mouth" a reaction from the pine nuts. 

     

    I have GERD and this is not the same bad taste in your mouth I can assure you.  It's not even a bad breath - it is just a horrible aftertaste of everything you eat or drink and it lingers in your mouth when nothing else is there.  Apparently it can last up to 2 weeks - I can only hope that's not true. :(

      I am in the same boat as all of your; however, I don't connect it with food. I'm connecting it with a chemical or smell in the house.  I know this sounds bizarre. When I am in the kitchen, I am fine, when I go upstairs into the foyer, and into my daughter's study, it's like I become a crazed lunatic (no, it's not because I have a teen - ha ha).  However, we always have to realize, as soon as I go into the room, my brain shifts.  I immediately get a metallic taste in my mouth and become what i call schizo.  I can be having a normal conversation and then I become agitated and manic.  So I stay out of the room.  We've aired it out over and over again.

       

      Last night, however, when I came upstairs, it happened, and I could smell cigarette smoke.  I used to react badly to that, and I realized, my soon-to-be-ex smokes outside but it stays on his clothes. He is living in the basement apt, and somehow, the air from the basement is being recycled upstairs, and it made me go crazy.  My mom died from emphysema, and she and my stepdad lived with me, and I recall having the air tested in the basement apt (it's lovely and above ground), because the same thing used to happen when I'd go into the apt. They tested it for radon, but it was negative. Now I'm realizing the ventilation is bringing the air from downstairs to the upstairs area (skipping a floor). I hear a fan in the attic, which I don't put on (it comes on automatically).  I think I have to get an air specialist in to check the system.

       

      I'm at my wits end as I woke up with the taste in my mouth and became manic immediately.  It is so frustrating! A few years ago, I was taking over-the- counter prevacid, but I don't recall whether it helped me or not as far as the chemical taste in my mouth.  I use apple cider vinegar on everything and take papaya enzymes as well as super bromelain but it doesn't help the taste or the "brain" reactions.  I'm fine outside the house which is 20 years old (we are first owners).

    Hello to other posters, I am also going to try the Bragg Apple Cider and Vinegar. I was told this would help in times past. I've had the GERD for over 20 years just got the bad taste about 10 years ago.

     

    For a TIP to hold down the acid taste and bad breath for about 8 hours while during business or at a Birthday party, work, etc,  or in general public, here's a great tip. BUY Wrigley's EXTRA, Long Lasting, PEPPERMINT Gum...truly that will work with social problems. I've not had anyone back off me for bad breath for over 2 years now.

     

    That one brand of gum truly works! I thought it was my teeth, but had dental work and took care of all of that within about 2 months. However, a week after teh end of the dental work with teeth thoroughly cleaned, the taste stayed, so it was not my teeth.  

     

    So until you get some other relief perferably the Bragg Vinegar and honey. The gum even though it is pepermint truly works. But, it has to be Wrigley's EXTRA Brand of PEPPERMINT.

     

    If it was not for the Lord first and the EXTRA Peppermint flavored gum, I would not be able to go into the public. I mean it's true, try it please...get out of the house at least and go forward in life. When I've tried the Bragg vinegar and honey I will try to get back on here to post...I've tried it but not for prolonged periods.

     

    I'm determined to beat this thing with the help of God and posters like yourself...so it's Bragg vinegar, honey and keep a supply of the Wrigley's EXTRA brand Peppermint only that I have tried that really works!

     

    If you are in a position that chewing gum is not feasible to chew, just hold it in your mouth after chewing it to break it down. It is the only gum that truly works better than any mouth wash for it stays with you for about 8 hours, I use one stick of gum  when it's not feasible to be chewing it and I use two sticks of that gum when I am in a position where I can be chewing the Peppermint gum...Now, EXTRA Peppermint is the ONLY one that has worked for me over two years now! Now to get that bitter taste to go away! In JESUS Name!

I have tried digestive enzymes before and they haven't worked and so not sure if maybe these ones are better or if it is just the bicarbonate of soda that is making my body so much more alkaline. I have been able to stop taking anything during the day now until my digestive enzyme with my main eve meal and the bicab and tablet before bed. The tablet by itself has never helped and so maybe next week I will try just the bicarb by itself before bed. Pam.

    I was diagnosed with a Hiatus hernia and GERD over two years ago and won't take medication.

    It was taking till around midday before I would feel less dry and thick in the mouth. now it never goes away at all.

    Kissing in the morning is not ever going to happen.  I feel sick and have the worst bad breath.

    Since starting full time work again I have been paranoid about it and have been chewing so much gum and eating sugar free mints without realising this could be making it worse..

    My salty taste never goes away and water does not quench it.

    I have a dry mouth but saliva shows in the corners of my mouth and I spit more when I talk.  Does not make sense I know.

    I have to sleep jacked up almost vertical on pillows.

    i am going to try the apple cider vinegar and will let you know if it works.

    plus am finally going to stop coffee, chocolate and any dairy.

    I cough so much after having dairy, occasionally vomit, but feel so ill and go red in the face. Even the lactose reduced stuff does it.

    I think that is making the symptoms worse as I have been having cereal with Zymil in the morning before going to work.

    We went to a wedding on Saturday night and my symptoms were so bad it was embarassing and I found it difficult to talk.  I have bad breath too but really look after my teeth and gums.

    Eating most foods can cause excruciating gut pains so much so that I am doubled over on the floor.

    I have no control over my weight and am usually feeling too tired to exercise.

    Soft drinks cause coughing in the morning and i mostly stay away from them.

    The weirdest thing is the drink V seems to soothe the symptoms and I don't think I really want to know why.  I only have one can every 2-3 weeks and have to stop myself wanting it more often.

    Thanks again for all the information........

    Hi Everyone. I have just come back from talking to the man in our local shop who is retiring through ill health after 26 years. He has Angina but also has Acid reflux which he manages to keep under control by completly cutting out all dairy foods.He said that even to have one cup of tea with dairy milk in when you are out somewhere can start it off.He showed me the packet of unsweetened Soya milk that he uses. I know that if I have too many eggs that can give me stomach pains and I have been changing to non dairy foods but since talking to him I will now completly leave Dairy foods off! Hope this helps others! Pam.

    I have been taking Sodium Bicarbonate from the chemist which is to help your body more Alkaline.(it is a bit dearer than what you get from food shops to put in cakes but not sure if it is the same or not)I feel sure that my problem has a lot to do with stress since my d.in.law stopped me seeing my Grandchildren!

My throat is starting to heal so it is not as sore. I still get mucus in my mouth in the morning. I get the fizzling in my throat even if I drink a sip of water. Let me know how you are doing.

I am 45 years of age had suffered terribly with reflux disorder from the age of 21 and also chronic Gastrisis was diagnosed with Barrettts esophagus at 31, which as you know is very serious. My consultant then reffered me for a fundoplication the best thing in the world ever ! no acid 'at all' no reflux, no pain, even my constipation ceased. I can not recommend it enough, slight discomfort for about 4 weeks when swallowing some foods mainly bread or mashed potatoes but nothing more. The Barretts esophagus has completely dissapeared, it was my saviour please go get your GP/Dr to refer you without delay.....amazing.

    It is like a sour/ bitter taste in the mouth and impossible to beat even after brushing my teeth.

    Tablets may ease it, however it will never be completely fine. The most common causes of it are stress, althought nobody ever makes this clear! and most doctors always diagnose it as poor eating habits.

     

    Good luck to all those sufferers who are trying to beat it!

I have to do it once every three months once it starts coming back. I am thinking that some undigested food must be trapped and is causing the reflux and it needs to come out. Maybe some daily fiber solution would also help? I will also say that I would suggest eating lightly for a while after you do the cleanse. Also, get the advice of your doctor to see if this is right for you.

      But  I read somewhere that  stress could be a root cause of  my problem  and  since  then I am taking my exercises serious, relaxing more  and eating right.   I am not out of  the woods  yet  but it is  too early to say.

Also taking my meds has decreased the pain in my stomach and has promoted healing. I am taking Aciphex 20 mg. Eating better and exercise have improved my condition. I also bought a wedge pillow instead of adjusting my bed... and it has worked wonders in decreasing reflux at night. I also recommend caffeine free chamomile tea with honey. Really good for the tummy. We can fight this! Just believe it and it will be so.

      Visit your near vitamin shope and find "Betaine HCl (hydrochloric acid)" with pepsin.  Most of the time dr. priscribe Antacid for Acid Reflux. but this problem ocurred due to low acid in your digation system. When you eat your food and you stomach doesn;t have enough acid to digest that food it cause this issue. All undigested food stay there and then it cause you gestric trouble.  That gas push you all the food and acied back to upper side of cheast and throat which cause sour test in mouth and heart bearn..

       

       

      Those who are dring alcoholic beverges, most of them are having same trouble because alcohol kill all good bacteria which is staying in your lower intenstine.

       

      Also, once you over the age of 30 your body will not generate new good friendly becteria and good acids which helps to digest your food. So, at that moment you should have to take that good acid and friendly bacteria oraly..

       

      For friendly becteria you have to take Probotics which you will get it from vitamin shope.

       

      I had same acid reflux issue before 6 month. I was taking 150mg Rantec every day. but after starting this betain HCI and probotics i have not taken any antacid or Rentac since last 4 months.

       

      Also, you do not have to take this betain HCI and probotics every day.  you have to take only 1 Tab in a day with your lunch or dinner. and 1 probotics with lunch/dinner.

       

      once you start feeling good you have to reduce yoru dose with every 2 days then every 3 days.....

       

      best of luck..

Things not moving through my system properly. I am 30 and have not experienced any issues like this before. I don't drink coffee, have only 4 or 5 cigarettes a day, and up to this point have consumed 1 or 2 beers when I get home from work. Been doing this for 10 years with no problems.

     

    My doctor says the bad taste is an acid reflux symptom and has told me to take Prilosec for two weeks. He says the bad taste is cause by water brash. My question is, why do I not feel this water brash coming into my mouth? I have had acid indigestion very intermittently in my life growing up, felt the burning sensation and tasted the actual juices coming up like sour orange juice. But this is not like that. I have not burped anything like this up. I just wake up with the horrible taste and it stays around all day.

     

    Also, I am curious if anyone has noticed little red bumps on their tongue along the tip and edges.

That valve has been weakened, so you either need to strengthen the valve or decrease the acid - really you need to do both for a while.

       

      This all started for me when negotiating a job change salary and then making the switch.  Horrible stress.  Once the stress subsided, my body started to recover.  But it took time and a proactive exercise based approach from me.   Prilosec helped but made me fatigued after taking it for a week or two.  I would yawn a hundred times from 8:00pm on.

       

      My reflux comes back from time to time after hard nights of partying, but otherwise has not become permanent.  If rigorously and properly addressed early (not just with meds), this does not have to be a lifelong disease!

      I have been having similar problems. maybe worse than anything that I have read so far. The metallic taste and mucus in my mouth started 3 years ago. No doctor has been able to tell me what the problem is. The bumps on my tongue are enlarged taste buds. The doctor told me that they are normal and begin to enlarge as you get older. I'm not certain if I believe her.

      After I eat certain foods, such as chocolate, I have convulsions and tremors. At 3 am I wake up with the urge to urinate. After I urinate I go back to bed and start to sleep. Every time I start to drift off to sleep I get a wave of nausea. The nausea then turns into a weird feeling that feels like tickling in my abdomen which causes spasms in my uturine area and in my intestines. This feeling then turns into a buzzing in my head that leads to what feels like an adrenaline rush. I can't sit still, if I don't get up and run I feel like my heart is going to stop. I feel like I can't breathe, and my blood pressure drops really quick. Then suddenly I start to have a seizure, only it's not like a regular seizure, I don't pass out for them. The seizure lasts from 1 to 5 minutes. It feels like a muscle spasm in the brain and every time the spasm hits my brain it feels like someone is splitting my brain in half with an ice pick and a sledge hammer. Afterwards I have tremors for hours and muscle weakness. Sometimes I feel very good afterwards, with no muscle or joint pain like I normally have, just tremors. It is very weird. Most of the day I feel like my head is buzzing and vibrating, like I'm lacking something essential in order to live. And after the seizures, sometimes it takes me days to remember people's names and simple things like what day it is and what my address or phone number is.

      Every time it happens I go to the emergency room and everything appears normal. Blood work is fine, cat scans are fine, x-rays are fine. They tell me it's panic attacks.

      They finally put me on clonazepam. I still have the nausea, I still have the metallic taste in my mouth, I still have pain when I eat and vomiting with certain foods (cheese is the worst) . But now, when I take the clonazepam, the need to urinate still wakes me up at 3am, but when the pressure starts to form in the back of my head and the tingling and buzzing feeling that starts in my head starts to climax, instead of seizures, it slowly starts to taper off and the seizures don't happen.

      If anyone has any idea as to what's going on let me know, because the Doctors have no clue.

      The taste in my mouth is akin to sucking on a penny all day long. It is horrible and causes anything on the tip and sides of my tongue to taste salty. Just when I think it is gone it comes back with a vengance. Luckily I havent had this problem in years. Then a week after my gastro told me I had a Hiatal hernia, WHAM! Gerd from hell!

      Hello guys, I have been feeling the metallic taste in my mouth and its really effecting my breath. One thing i can say is that i have found a cure that will help minimize the taste in your mouth.  its actually a combination of things and u MUST follow them in order and should take about 10 minutes to do.

      Hello guys, I have been feeling the metallic taste in my mouth and its really effecting my breath. One thing i can say is that i have found a cure that will help minimize the taste in your mouth.  its actually a combination of things and u MUST follow them in order and should take about 10 minutes to do.

      1) Drink a glass of water to make sure you are well hydrated.

      2) Floss your teeth.

      3) With a tongue cleaner/scraper, clean the tongue area gently but sufficiently

      4) You will need to flush ur nasal passageway with Nedi pot which can be purchased at any drug store.( the salt you mix comes with the Nedi pot).

      5) VERY IMPORTANT: Rinse and gargle your mouth with Diluted 3% Hydrogen Peroxide.

      (depending on the condition and sensitivity of your gums, use 1 part HP with 1 part water for people with healthy gums/mouth and for those with sensitivity/gum issues, it may be safer to use 1 part HP with 3-4 parts water for 20-30 seconds (if it tastes weird u can add a drop of peppermint).

      6) Scrape your tongue again once you have rinsed the HP water mix.

      7) Now brush your teeth with Baking soda and make sure to brush ur tongue and make sure u get the back area cleaned as well.

      8) Brush your teeth with ur regular toothpaste and also brush your tongue.

      7) Now rinse again with the Dilluted HP mouth wash.

      8) Scrape again.

      9) Rinse mouth with your regular Mouthwash(listerine, Scope, Etc).

      10) and finally you are done make sure to drink a glass of water with AppleCiderVINEGAR. add 1-2 tablespoon of ACV to ur glass of water.

       

      I hope this helps, it sure did for me and remember to do this every morning morning and night until u feel that the taste is totally gone.  If this doesnt help it is more likely coming from your stomach and will never fully go away.

      In that case consult ur Phisician right away.

    I am going thru the process of being diagnosed with GERD. And one of the thing I have is a yuk taste in my mouth! It comes on at any time of the day and its like a sticky mucus kind of taste. And you can not was it out even cleaning your teeth wont get rid of it. It just comes back. If I rinse my mouth out and spit in a glass it look milky kind of.

I have had several bad bouts in several years. Went to the specialist and had the scope done years ago, at that time had errosion of esophigis,possible ulcer(which due to primary putting me on meds before going) specialist thought helped clear it up but, saw evidence of one being there. I have felt terrible for about 6 weeks now. I increase prilosec on the real bad days but, still very sick. I get a terrible sensations -discomfort in rib area and under breast. I go to Dr's tomorrow. Hope nothing else has been added to all this. I do know from past experience, it takes some time to feel better. I went through many meds till they hit on the right one, so many made me feel worse. so, here I go again.

You might want to go to and get a gastroscopy - this is a procedure where they put a camera into your stomach to detect stomach ulcers etc.. I went for one last month, but the diagnosis was pretty underwhelming: I was told I suffer from acid or bile reflux, was advised to keep a food diary to see what foods trigger the problem, and take an over the counter medication for heartburn/stomach problems called motillium...I'm not really seeing any huge improvements so far, but take a look at my last post re: not eating after 7 pm. not eating spicy foods, etc. - you might find it helpful.

      Please keep me posted if you find any solutions yourself, because I'm REALLY fed up with that horrible taste! Thanks and good luck!

I did have an endoscopy a year ago and they didn't find anything...meds haven't had much effect...I did stop taking any pain killers like ibuprofen, which aggravated it, and slowed down on coffee.

When i got back up i realised it had gone away... therefore whenever i get the bad taste in my mouth, i do a handstand agaisnt the wall for a few secs and it goes away... try it and let me know if it works for u guys.

      I started on 2 tablespoons in a glass of iced water first thing in the morning before breakfast then again before lunch and again before dinner, after a few days I was feeling a lot better after 2 weeks I had no symptons at all . I take 2 teaspoons in iced water 2 or three times a day now and I no longer have my head 9 inches higher then my feet and I have lost 7 pounds in weight, a real bonus. Not the nicest drink to start with but its fine now. Other people mix it with lots of other things so read the site where there is lots of information.

      Hey Sarah - following the advice I have picked up online and from friends, at the moment I'm trying not to eat after 7pm, and trying to eat as regularly as possible throughout the day. It takes real effort though....try and stay away from sugary and spicy foods - tomatoes and citrus fruits aren't supposed to help either. Rather than cutting out all of these foods from my diet, I'm simply eating them in moderation. I think not eating after 7pm is the best advice I can give - I did it last week (but not at the weekend - a social life tends to interfere with those kind of rules!) and I definitely saw an improvement by thursday and friday. I'm have the taste again now after the weekend, but I'm back on the 7pm wagon as of today!

      By the way - if you haven't been diagnosed with acid reflux, it would be worth your while paying a visit to the dentist - a dental cavity may just as easily be responsible for the bad taste.

      Good luck! Big Smile

      PS - if anyone has any further advice to give - please let us know!

Similar to you, my doctor hasn't been very helpful - recommending the use of motillium and keeping a food diary to see what foods trigger the problem...I find the exact same as you - the taste in my mouth torments me, but not as much as the bad breath that accompanies it - having suffered with the problem for over a year now, it's really beginning to get me down. I'm trying my best to follow the rules in terms of diet, am a very healthy weight, fastidiously attend my dentist, and drink at least 2 litres of water a day - and still no improvement - it's really driving me mad! Have you found any solutions to the problem since June? Please let me know if you have - I'm getting really tired of snacking all the time in an attempt to rid myself of that awful taste Sad

    The metallic taste started last summer after a sinus infection. I've been on two rounds of anti-biotics, two rounds of cortisone plus inhalers. The codeine cough medicine was worthless. Best help was mucinex with cough suppressant. I was really sick in early Sept caushing rough 2. The allergist stopped the lisinopril which helped a little. The dentist says it is not my teeth. The internist agreed with the dentist that it could be a medication I am taking but why now? The same meds never caused it before. I am scheduled for bladder tie up surgery later in March since of course when I cough hard my bladder leaks. I question if this is acid reflux. The test is metallic and after I cough. I am trying the "3 day tic cough cure" (psuedonephredrine, 1st generation antihistamine Plus twice a day Afrin nasal spray). That helped the first time around. Not good for the blood pressure. I have lost 30 pounds in the last three months using Alli but this problem started in July or August. Any comments?

    When I visited the doctor for having the feeling that something was stuck in my throat they told me I had acid reflux, even though I have never had heart burn or any symptoms associated with acid reflux. I thought the thing in my throat was a doughnut that I choked on a few days previous to visiting the doctor, but they were still persistent in saying that I have acid reflux. I even received a barium swallow because I could not keep food down or liquids, I was able to keep down water though. They saw nothing abnormal. I have now completed 10 days of medication and I am now having the worst heart burn, a cough, my throat is sore and my mouth does taste funny :/ Is it possible that the medication set this off or do I really have acid reflux?? What should I do from this point if I continue to have a sore throat and heartburn and a cough?? And if I have always had Acid Reflux or GERD could that be why I have asthma?? This is all so confusing and it’s starting to affect my life more than I would like.

      I also have the feeling of something stuck in my throat, it sometimes feels like a burning sensation and I also have thick saliva and bad taste at times. Med doesn't seem to work very well, and I have mild gastritis. Has anyone come across any alternative methods that help?

      I am a alternative medicine gurru self taught of course. I have been using Virgin coconut oil and it seems to help my acid reflux along with aloe vera you can get them both from a health food store I have heard of sufferers healing themselves with the coconut oil after try all the acid reflux medication with no relife. Coconut oil helps with lots of intestinal problems including IBS and Gastro infections. I used it to cure a pylori infection after a round of antibiotics didn't cure it. You also might want to try manuka honey and with the aloe vera get the juice or the gel that can be added to smoothies instead of the pills you can feel the gel cooling all the way down the throat and hit your stomach it deffinately gives me some relife. I'm all for modern medicine but when that fells I always go back to mother nature I say look them up and see the benifits of Extra virgin coconut oil ( you want to make sure its EVCO or it loses some of it's healing properties) Manuka Honey and aloe vera ( Not the kind you put on your sunburn has to be bought at the health food store and be eatible) if youve tried everything else it can't hurt right?

    Bad taste in the mouth, is most likely because you are one of the sufferers of acid reflux that has come full circle. I am having surgery to be rid of this pesky ailment that is as bad as any serious ailment. It is internal and very hard to treat. I use ucalyptis cough drops continually till I have the surgery in Oct. Get on the web and you will find many others who are suffering the same stomach as you do, believe me. I also now have developed canker sores in my mouth along with bad taste.My teeth are still intact. I feel if I do not have the surgery, teeth will be affected. Get a good internist or gastro doctor, who will clue you in on acid reflux and if not taken care of properly it will go into a more complex disease. After being stonewalled by numerous doctors and medicated, I have an advanced bad gut. Take care and good luck, Carol Kearfott

Also I cannot swallow any pills or any food that is solid and big, I try to chew every food until is almost liquid, is very tiring. Sometimes I even have a taste coming to my mouth that is like rotten flesh! I have been diagnosed with this problem 3 years ago and took Lanzoprazol and Domperidona, but I stopped as I am struggling to swallowing the pills. I found a website that gives lots of advice about natural remedies for treating acid reflux. I did not tried yet as I just found it today, so I have some hope that will work.

I have a magnitude of health issues that are too big now.  Bad taste, belching all the time, gas pockets, Baretts, and hiatal hernia. I  feel so bad for all of us that suffer. I believe that the medical profession is putting this on the back burner. Of course I have told all of you, I have never been negligent about my health. The doctors that I had let this slide and continued to treat me with meds. Now the end result is the precancerous Baretts. Someone was on my side, that is the team of doctors that I researched thru a dogged search on web and hospitals to see if anyone doctor specialized in BARIATRICS and GASTRO. I got the doctor that pays attention and yes he ordered all tests and yes, I am a candidate. If you take the time and see this thru you will get help. Thanks for your attention and Good luck Carol

I researched for something else to help my reflux and bingo i found it. I take Apple cider vinegar every day and after 2 weeks I was flat in my bed, heaven. I also used to get the horrible taste in my mouth but it went once i started on the ACV. Its fantastic, look at the site Im not the only one who thinks so.

      Hi all, I think apple cider vinegar is good, I stopped it last time, but my reflux is coming back, its gives a bitter taste in mouth and cause me bad headaches. The doctor gave me caffox for the headache though i tried to avoid painkiller as much as possible. I think apple cider vinegar is good for the long run.

      I had the worst taste in my mouth. After reading some of the replies I tried the apple cider vinegar and honey. It didn't taste too good but one dose last night and another this morning and it seems to be gone. Thank you.

      I hear ya,  I've been on medication for almost 2 years and all of the sudden (while on meds) I started getting an acid taste in my mouth again.  It even makes my ear hurt and my nose is dry and eyes burn.  It's only been about 2 weeks since this started up again and I plan on going to the Dr. if it keeps up.  I HATE it.

      Licorice protects the esophagus by boosting production of mucin, a substance that forms a protective barrier against stomach acid. Before meals, chew licorice-root tablets in deglycyrrhizinated form (which doesn't increase blood pressure or cause water retention as licorice does).  Also, one red apple 3 hours before going to bed is very good.  Anyway, it is very important to be strict with the diet and not eat or drink food or drinks that are not good for this condition.  Drink 8 glasses of water daily and exercise.

       

      I hope this helps.

      You may wish to get rid of the Bluemint Orbit Gum.  From what I've been told by my physician and from what I've read from other people who suffer from acid mouth, mint creates more acid.  The mint is defeating your purpose. 

       

      Also, try adding honey to the vinegar.

       

      I hope that this helps.

       

      Good Luck.

      Hi , I have the very same situation. The sour taste (my consultant told me) is bile acid. Try to eat a lower fat diet and eat things such as brown rice, mash or cous cous to soak it up. If it is bad I chew a little piece of mint gum and the saliva seems to help shift it a bit. Good luck! I know how you feel it is vile and relentless xx

Nothing I have done has worked until I decided to take some old expired alkaseltzer I had on hand yesterday. I noticed a difference right away. I went to the store and got a big box and drank one about every 4 hours yesterday and definitely felt relief from it. It made the taste go from an 8 to a 2 (on a 1-10 scale) I've also drank 3 glasses of water w/ 1 tsp of baking soda in it yesterday and the taste in my mouth is finally tolerable. Its not gone, but I can deal with this. I'm also taking OTC previcid, but I've been taking 2 pills at night and 2 in the morning.I know its not good to do a bunch of things at once but after dealing with this for weeks on end the relief is more important to me right now. I am also taking milk thistle and acidophilous. I tried the ACV and honey for days as well as the Milk. They did not work for me. I do not have health insurance so I cant say I have Reflux or maybe my body is trapped in an acidic state but acid mouth is acid mouth its nasty and debilitating when it stays for weeks on end. I hope this info might help someone, I was ready to jump off a bridge if I didnt find some relief soon!

I have been staying away from these foods and nothing has happened. I do take imeprozole and it is not working. The honey and applecider vinegar and water is supposedly very healthy for your hepatic system, esohpagus and stomach. Also, if you have bad sinuses the drip from that can cause a bad taste too. Licorice root or even the licorice candy has helped my taste, but it has calories. I do find sometimes that when I lie down and in the middle of the night when I try to swallow, I can't. It is very scarry. I am going for an endoscopy.

      Suddenly about two days ago I started to get what I call a metallic taste in my mouth, just out of the blue. I have had acid reflux for years, but it's been in check. Also, I have IBS. The taste increases when I drink red wine or eat things that are acidic. I've also come off a bad sinus infection and cold this past winter and ear problems. I just wonder if it's all related.


      I've cut back on red wine, coffee, and anything that creates the taste. It goes away, but comes back when I eat something like that. I also have a pain in my left side under my ribs, and my stomach is a bit more distended than normal...kind of goes up and down.


      The taste has to go, but I want to do the right thing. It helps when I take antacids and drink water, too. May try the honey, but any REAL suggestions as to the cause?? Could this be this H-Pylori??

When I get this I feel generally under the weather too. Some days I'm comfortable and some days anything and everything causes it. I too have an urge to drink it away with water but it doesn't go till I rest and go back to very plain foods.

       

      I used to very much enjoy a glass of wine but now it all tastes like a glass of vinigar.

       

      Only had Omeperazole for a 4 week stint and get some relief but is this just masking and not sorting the problem. Over the counter ant-acids just make my gut feel sluggish and windy. Nightmare all round

My doctor says that if you don't have a bowel movement at least 2-3 times a day that it could be a problem. The taste that comes up in your mouth is actually backed up poop. I would see a doctor because yours could be something else

      Hi!!Smile

      The immediate remedy for bad taste in mouth is eating a tablet called "Digene" .It iproves your digestion and also relieves from your bad breadth.

      Another rescue is chewing cardmom.

      If the problem prevails then show to the doctor as it might be the problem in your stomach!!

      All The Best and get well soonSmile

      Hi there. With stress often there is a stomach response. In my case, when I went through a lot of study and personal stress things got so bad that my food was going right through me and thus I was eating less and less. I started getting really bad stomach pains with nausea etc, plus I was getting very thin. I eventually was hospitalised after a severe stomach episode. I had eaten some salami and some time later developed such severe pain in the abdomen that I couldn't move. I was taken to hospital and some hours later was sick. What I brought up was thick mucous. I was eventually diagnosed with having a sliding hiatus hernia. It's quite probably that it was brought on/induced by the effects of the stress. What you'll probably need to do is go on a course of ant-acids and perhaps even a relaxant directed at the stomach smooth muscles (reduces the excitation of the muscles and therefore prevents spasms). Following treatment the stomach will 'relax' and won't get upset everytime you eat thus allowing you to eat normally and get back to a healthy weight. The nausea and bile reflux will also go away. The reason for the bile reflux is because the stomach has become so acidic (because of lack of food that results in mucous production which neutralises, and also because of the stress response). If you wake during the night with severe abdominal pain roll over onto your left side. This prevents the stomach contents from 'leaking' out and causing reflux. Until your stomach has settled reduce your consumption of acid foods and beverages, including coffee and chocolate, and be sure to leave plenty of time between eating and reposing. Get better soon.

      Thankyou so much for the information. Everything discussed is exactly the same symptoms as myself. I have been on medication from the Dr & must say things have improved. I am now eating a little & the stomach pain has reduced significantly. The meds are now finished. I hope you, too, feel better soon.

Just visualise the anatomy of it and you'll have it worked out. Another thing to do is to raise your torso by an extra pillow (a med student friend said that the literature states that a 15 degree incline is sufficient for results).

      Reflux etc is something that, once you learn how, can be managed well which is great. It can still play up at times but once you get the hang of it you know how to avoid nasty episodes :). All the best.

If you did, did the doctor give you a diagnostic?  It would be a good idea to get an upper endoscopy so the doctor can see your stomach and esophagus.  A barium swallow is not enough in case that there is anything wrong, because I believe the lining of the esophagus cannot be seen with the Barium.  Also with the endoscopy the doctor can make biopsies at the same time he is viewing the stomach and esophagus.  Also, you should get blood and urine tests.  This is what you should do first.  Also, drink a lot of water (8 glasses a day).  Your last meal should be 3 hours before you go to bed and one red apple 3 hours before going to bed is very good.  I do not know if you are aware of what you should eat or not.  Try to relax.  Go for a walk daily (one hour) and do yoga or other type of exercises.  There is a lot of information in internet that explain you about yoga.  I would not be taking a lot of medication because this makes it worst.  But if you have not been at the doctors, you should go at least to make sure that there is not anything serious there.  I know is super frustrating and that doctors do not do very much.  I hope after this you feel better.

But, I still get that taste in my mouth and the burping and side pain. I went to our Merchantile store and got something that is supposed to help with gallbladder. A little relief, but not enough.

Foods such as cous cous, mash or rice are great because they mop up and shift the bile on.

      It may not sound pleasant, but when this "acid mouth" or for me rather "acid back of the throat" becomes unbearable just taking a swig straight from the bottle instantly gives some gratification to the throat and starts working on the source, a lack of acid in the stomach to balance the amount of food coming in.

       

      As this effect has been happening more recently in past weeks, I find myself craving vinegar when it does. The other benefits, not only digestive that the apple cider vinegar gives are well worth the effort.

       

      If the taste is too strong for you, try diluting (a tsp to start) in warm water, or drink orange juice before/after you taking a sip, or in my case a swig of 1-4 oz.

       

      Good Luck!

It may not seem like a big deal, but for me it was huge. Having been a smoker in the past, I developed the habit of chewing gum, using breath spray, and sucking on mints, almost 24/7. I quit smoking years ago, but hadn't given up the mint habit until someone pointed out to me that I was probably aggravating the acid reflex problem. Quitting mint alone improved my condition substantially. The next thing I'd recommend is "Heartburn Relief", by Enzymatic Therapies. It's an orange peel extract, and it works better than anything else I've tried therapeutically. The final one is chewable licorice root tablets but make sure you get the deglycrrhizinated variety, so you don't increase blood pressure levels or retain water.

      I have heard that ingesting baking soda on a constant basis is really dangerous because you don't want to over alkalize, or you could die! also, the apple cider vinegar made it much worse for me, I felt like I had swallowed razor blades, too much acid! I'm finding a bit of a few things help to keep the acid reflux at bay: 

      1: I used to have the bad habit of sleeping after lunch lying down, only when I started having acid reflux, I sadly learned just how degenerative that habit had been! 2: I also gave up mint. It used to bring me such relief with my stomach, but once I learned that it can over relax the stomach sphincter, I stopped taking it. 3: I get daily exercise now, where as before I wasn't exercising enough. It seems to help to get my blood pumping and oxygen in my lungs. Plus sweating and pushing my body to higher limits obviously help my digestion to normalize. 4:I eat a mostly vegetarian diet. When I eat meat, everything goes to hell. I try to limit my eat ingestion to mostly chicken. 5: I cut out like 98% of processed grains and sugars. 6: I go to sleep at an earlier hour and I try to meditate once a week, and I do yoga regularly to keep myself feeling less stressed. 7: I touch base with myself when I do feel stressed and I practice being patient when I'm having a hard time. 8: I try to cry when I feel like I need to, just to let the energy out, and I try to laugh to keep things in perspective. 9: I take ginger in small amounts (fresh, I either steep it in hot water for tea, or eat a small piece slowly) when I feel like the acid has enflamed my esophagus. 10: I started taking slippery elm bark to help with inflammation and I'm hopeful that if I keep taking it, it'll help the reflux disappear.

Flax seeds have been found to heal the intestine besides a whole lot of other awesome benifits. Just google (benifits of flax seeds) and find out for yourself.  At first you may have loose stools (not diarea) because of fiber in the flax seed but after a while your body will adjust.
