Sour taste in my throat, how about yours?

I have acid reflux and often have a sour taste in my throat. Can anyone tell me if this is due to excess stomach acid or the lack of stomach acid?

Usually too much stomach acid as it is coming up that far to taste it. I was diagnosed with acid reflux and it kept getting worse and worse, and toward the end, I started tasting acid - yuk. After a few more months and a couple of days forgetting my prilosec I ended up in the hospital. Turns out is wasn't acid reflux - it was a gallbladder full of stones (over 30). After they removed it, the pain and everything was gone.------------------DeAnn "Dee"
thanks for the reply.I will ask my gastro about that when I go on Oct. 11th.
Hi throatburn, and welcome to the BB.
I don't have GERD myself, but here is a link to an article on GERD that's pretty interesting. I'm sorry about your reflux. From what other people here say it sounds like it can be pretty uncomfortable.JeanG
