Burning mouth: Take a look at your diet. Discontinue alcohol, acidic foods, acidic fruits, smoking, mouthwashes, spicy foods. Bland diet for three weeks.

Related to GERD: This is more likely related to your GERD. Many will experience silent reflux of food contents up to & into the mouth at times. The acid taste in the mouth is one prime symptom. Some even have this put small amounts into their windpipe triggering a chronic cough. Reducing caffeine or nicotine along with not reclining after meals can help reduce this.
