I have developed a very bad taste in my mouth and wanted to know if this is also from reflux?
Hi there, Pete -
I know this is an old question, but I did want someone from our staff to answer you! I hope you've long since discovered the cause of this problem and gotten some treatment for it. A bad taste in the mouth is very common with reflux because of acid washing up into the throat (especially at night), but it can also be caused by teeth issues such as an infection in a tooth. Naturally I'm only a layperson and can't diagnose the issue though. If you did find out what was causing the symptoms and got treatment for it, perhaps you'd consider coming back and telling us how things turned out for you? Your experience might be invaluable to someone else suffering from the symptoms.
Here are some links that might be helpful for you in any case. Best of luck to you!

Hi, I have suffered from reflux for 20 years. The bad taste could be. If it is lasting all the time even when your not having reflux then I would be inclined to think it is something else. It could be allergies. If it continues for a long period of time you should ask your doctor.
