Does Acid Reflux Cause Tongue Ulcers And Sore Mouth

Does acid reflux cause tongue ulcers and a sore mouth? I have already taken four packs of lanzrapole, so what is causing it?


Hi there, Shireen --

I know this is a very old question and that you've likely long ago found an answer to this, but I did want to make sure someone from our staff answered you! I'm not a doctor, but I can tell you that mouth sores and tongue ulcers are a common symptom of acid reflux because of acid backing up in the throat.

Did you ever see your doctor about this? If so, perhaps you could come back and tell us what his/her diagnosis was and how the symptoms were treated? It might be helpful to someone else who is having the same issue.

Here are some links on reflux that might be helpful to you, in any case. Be well!
