    Does acid reflux cause bumps on your tongue?

    For the past 2 weeks, i have felt like i had a hair at the back of my throat. As time went by, it got worse, and now when i look back there, I see bumps at the back of my tongue. I cannot get no relief.  Do you think it is acid reflux? Or could it be hormonal? I am 8 months pregnant.  I have tried everything, I ate bread, gargled, I have even tried to stick my finger back there to get whatever it is out, and nothing. I am getting severely frustrated with this and it is really bothersome. I am not even sure if it has anything to do with acid reflux. I have not been diagnosed with it, but I do have bad heart burn and indigestion. Everytime i belch, i feel like something comes up and my stomach burns. I dont know, Im just frustrated.

    Same problem too. I have acid reflux as well. My doctor prescribed some medication and a laundry list of foods to stay away from such as:


    Fatty foods

    Large meals

    tomato sauce or tomato based dishes

    Calcium channels



    Caffeine beverages






    I must say I feel much better since I have deleted those items from my diet. I still have to bumps on the back of my toung but the are starting to shrink and are slowy going away. I hope this bit of advice helps... Its important to stick to the food lifestyle change if you want relief...

    I'm just wondering if you ever found out the answer.  I have the same exact problem except I'm not pregnant.  It seems to get worse when I have my period though so maybe it is a hormone thing.   Thanks:-) READ MORE
