    What does it mean when you can taste acid?

    I get this taste every now and then in my mouth that basically tastes like vomit so I'm assuming it's the tase of stomach acid. Would this be heartburn or indigestion causing this? Does it mean I will vomit because I am terribly phobic of that!!

    I'm sorry to say it but it sure sounds like acid reflux to me. It can eventually lead to damage of the esophegus (sp) if it's not taken care of. If the doctor tells you that's what it is then there are prescription medicines for it. You can also use use over-the-counter meds. Unfortunately, they have done me no good. They may help you though. I don't think the acid reflux will make you vomit. It does taste gross though.
    I have decided to try some alternative treatments for my acid reflux. Namely Kombucha tea, probiotics (like yogurt), and cayenne pepper.
    Good luck!

    Acid Reflux can make you vomit, if its bad enough. Well, at least thats my experience. Go get something to get it under control. Try Tums at first thats easy and tastes good. If that doesnt work, maybe get a med. Good luck, I know its not fun.
