Remedies for Acid Reflux and Sour/bitter Taste in Mouth
Ted, I have been researching the site Earth Clinic in regards to acid reflux and a sour/bitter taste in the mouth. I have a few questions, because I am not sure which remedy to take. Here is my situation. About 6 months ago I started to get a sour/bitter taste in my mouth all the time no matter what, it is always there. This started after being on 2 rounds of antibiotic and a week of prednisone for an ear infection which it turned out I did not have, it was my jaw. Anyway, ever since then I have been having this awful taste in my mouth. Been to a couple of different doctors and no one knows what it is. I was on nexium for a while too and that didn't help either. I didn't have any heartburn issues in the beginning, but I do now. I have the pain in the chest and constant burping. I don't know if the sour/bitter taste is related to the acid reflux or not, but I'm willing to try anything to get rid of it. I notice that the taste gets worse after I eat sugar, dairy or spicy foods, so that is why I think it might be related to the acid reflux. My question to you is which remedy should I take? The baking soda and ACV or the one that talks about the lemon juice and baking soda? I'm a bit confused. Please let me know which remedy you think would help me the most. Also, I am taking Protonix now, 40 mg in the morning and at night but doesn't seem to be doing anything yet.
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am going on a cruise at the end of this month and would like to enjoy it if I can. Thank you.
