Reflux: Is likely, in your case however suggesting biliary origin, based on bitter taste, usually sour with gastric acid. Before treating, a firm diagnosis should be secured and I recommend starting with your primary care doc or GP who can further coordinate tests and possible referrals as needed.

Agree with Dr. P: If you are overweight that may contributing to the reflux by raising pressure in the abdomen. If you are overweight, it is imperative that you lose weight, not easy, but essential. Joining a support group like weight watchers may help. Wish you good health!
