    hi Caron28119, same problem here. I have bitter taste and seems like there is sticky mucus in my throat that I have to clear every now and then. How long have you known you were suffering from acid reflux? I just found out about mine last Sunday. I just don't know if I've had this for a long time and not aware of it. I sure hope that doctors can find a real cure and not just to minimize the symptoms. We also have to change our lifestyle to. Would you know if it's hereditary? My mom has this to based on the symptoms she's had years before

    Claireibear, do you have other symptoms besides bitter taste and throat clearing?

    Where in your mouth is the bitter taste? Mine is on my tongue and around my mouth but never in my throat which seems weird!

    I think the symptoms have to be managed by life style changes tbh - certain foods noticeably make me worse - tomatoes, onion, garlic, dairy sad

    I miss cheese and pizzas!!

    Hi mrspinkrat, can't tell which part but I guess the bitter taste is all over my mouth.

    I'm actually preparing myself to accept the lifestyle changes I have to make. One of these is joining this forum and being able to talk to people like you who can understand what I'm going thru. I'm gonna miss a lot of these things for one I drink I smoke I love coffee . I will eat anything with chocolates.

    I just hope we all overcome this and be normal people again.

    I sleep on my left but don't suffer during the night.....

    I believe you have to actually elevate the bed it's as pillows can cause a problem. Put a block under to top of the bed to elevate by about 6 inches.

    I know - it's a bit depressing isn't it? No tea for me or tomatoes, which I love sad
