Yellowish/orange coated tongue. Is this a symptom?
Does anyone get a coating on their tongue from acid reflux. I don't have heartburn, but I do have a constant throat clearing problem, occasional hoarseness, and a burning feeling sometimes in my mouth and throat. I'm not sure if it's allergies or reflux. But for the last month I've had the coating on my tongue. My dentist gave me a tongue scraper, said it works better than a toothbrush. Well IMO it doesn't work at all. Toothbrush is definately better, but the coating keeps coming back. I don't know if it's something totally unrelated, but I thought maybe it could be reflux. (my dentist said it's just food staining my tongue. Why then am I the only one in my family with it when we all eat the same thing?).
