Bad taste in mouth from GERD?

I have been taking Protonix for the past 4 months and it has worked great. But for the past several weeks i have been getting a sour taste in my mouth that makes my cheeks hurt. Could this be acid reflux backing up into my mouth? It is really painful and disruptive. Any info is appreciated.

Re: Bad taste in mouth from GERD?

Yes. It can be acid reflux. You might try researching LPR or laryngopharyngeal reflux. That is the typical term for when acid comes up past the upper esophageal sphincter. There have been quite a few threads on this on the board so you will find good information here. Treatment is often similar to GERD, but it often takes more time for it to heal because the throat isn't as protected from the acid as the esophagus is.
