Bile reflux: Most likely due to bile reflux not acid reflux/ Suggest seeing gastroenterologist. May need Reglan (metoclopramide) to help empty the stomach faster

It could be: caused by either alkaline or acid reflux, so ask your doctor for specific advice. It could also come from unrelated cause such as tonsillitis.
