I believe my condition involves mainly non-acid reflux as I rarely have heartburn or the acid taste in my mouth. I just have signficant coughing after eating.
i have non-acid reflux and feel an acid taste in my mouth, ppi's dont work for me, i still have to confirm if in addition to the bile reflux im also refluxing hydrochloric aci, i have no heartburn either, nothing was found on my stomach or esophagus except for too much bile.
PS: i've never had my gallbladder removed, mostly people who have tend to get bile reflux (non acid reflux, duodenogastric reflux)
