Hello. Got a question and forgive me if its been asked before. I was recently diagnosed with GERD. My question is have any of you ever just been sittin there and outta the blue just have a bitter taste envelope your tongue? Just plain bitter and lasts for a while. No acid back washing into your mouth at all. No burping at all just that bitter taste on the tongue. Do you guys think that it is caused from GERD or could it be something other than that say gallbladder?? Let me clarify that I was also diagnosed back in Feb. with gastritis and given a script of Prilosec. I did stop the Prilosec because the gastritis is gone or to my knowledge its gone. Feel better there. Prilosec (20 mg. once a day) has warning issues with the kidneys so I started taking otc famotadine 20 mg. I did have this bitter taste mildly on the Prilosec so I know that switching meds has nothing to do with it.

Thanks for the input and have a blessed day.

Re: New here

I had my gallbladder removed several years ago and also suffer from acid/bile reflux
In my experience you can have the sour taste in the mouth for several reasons. Acid reflux being most common I think
I also personally have a bad taste in the mouth if I have not eaten for a while

If you had gallbladder trouble you would know about it as it's very painful in the area beneath the ribs on your left side. Edited to add NOT left side....right side!
