Could be reflux: Even though you don't recognize "heartburn" the taste in your mouth that you sense as coming up from the throat may actually be a sign of some degree of reflux or regurgitation. Headaches may or may not be related to this problem. Are these symptoms the reason you are on the medication listed or are those for some other cause?
Dr. Susan Arnoult

Still may be reflux: The bitter taste can still be acid reflux even without any symptoms of heartburn. Try using ranitidine (zantac) or omeprazole (prilosec) OTC for 1-2 weeks. If it doesn't resolve, see your doctor.
