Acid Reflux - Hot weather

Its been quite hot down here in the South East today ( UK ) and I seem to have had a bad day with acid. All day I have had a metalic taste in my mouth a pain in my shoulder and an acid smell in my nose so I am wondering whether anyone else experiences the same in hot weather.

To make it even worse I have felt very tired all day as well.

All comments would be appreciated.

    If you are taking any calcium supplements or ant-acids such as Tums, Gaviscon, calcium carbonate then stop them immediately and drink a can one zero coke a day until it clears up. (The phosphoric acid in the coke helps the stomach to rebalance it's acid levels)

      If Steves method doesnt work Ted you could try the supplement Alpha Lipoic Acid. Seems to get rid of burning in the mouth and metallic tastes. Must be OK as the Mayo clinic seem to reccomend it. Been taking it for almost two years with zero problems

      Thanks Rex I have made a note about your suggestion and I will try it if Steve's suggestion doesn't work out. Ted

    Also observed that during summer when weather is 34 degrees above, the

    acidity is up plus a warm mouth but no metallic taste. The

    warm weather started two wks ago

      Mary sorry to read you are also suffering. Its funny you should mention checking my acid levels because yesterday I ordered son pH test strips. Purely because I want to use them and record my acid levels to show my doctor as like many others on here my doctor seems blaise about my illness.There are of cause worse things to suffer from but this acid reflux is proving to be a real pain Ted
