    Me too!!! I've had white coated tongue and sore throat for a while now and i'm getting concerned. I haven't tested for HIV, but i'm pretty sure i don't have it. I might see a dentist soon so i will ask her about it (if it doesn't go away on its own by then).

    Did the doctors check your tongue for bacteria? I think they can cause it too.

      I think it's caused by GERD, but it's good to get it checked out to get other serious conditions ruled out.

      I've had it for a few days now, but it's gotten a bit better, now it's only at the very back of my tongue.

      If your doctor doesn't think that it's a big cause for concern then you shouldn't worry much about it. But i know how you feel - as soon as i get a new strange symptom i could connect to GERD i panic.

      I hope you get it sorted out soon xx

      Also do you know how to get rid of the thrush? I've never had that before

    Hi Ravi.  I can only speak about the sore throat.  I take Ranitidine (2  150 mg pills) before bedtime.   That works for me. I sleep on a 6-7" wedge - making sure that I get the elevation starting at my waist - and using pillows at the top of the wedge for my head support.  I have found that when I don't strictly do the correct elevation that I wake up with a sore throat.  I think the sore throat has to do more with not being elevated enough while you're sleeping.
