Burning in throat & feels like something is there when I swallow & bitter taste in mouth. Has lasted for 4 days. Can acid reflux to last this long? N

Maybe, but...: Could also be some other cause for the symptoms. One's doctor can check. Throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat).

GERD or acid reflux? I have been waking up with burning in throat and sour taste in mouth for days. All heart tests are ok.

GERD or acid reflux? I have been waking up with burning in throat and sour taste in mouth for days. All heart tests are ok.

Acid Reflux: Your symptoms are typical for acid reflux. When lying horizontal, the reflux worsens. Try to not eat anything within 2 hours of retiring. Sometimes elevating the head of the bed by propping up the front legs with blocks can help. Anti acids like Mylanta can provide some relief as can over the counter medications like Nexium (esomeprazole) and Prilosec. If the symptoms persist, see your doctor.

Severe acid reflux that's so painful, its radiating to my right shoulder and back! Since when could reflux cause burning sensation in shoulders?

GERD: You need to have your gallbladder checked out. That is what it sounds like at this time. I would see a GI doc to make sure it is a peptic ulcer, esophagitis, etc.

I have dull pain under right side of ribs. About an inch from middle of chest. Occasionally I will have burning like acid reflux. Should I worry?

Severe acid reflux never had before now off & on began about 1 mo ago burning painful real bad took 1 15 mg cap Prevacid (lansoprazole) over 30 min still vary bad?

GERD: I think you are pointing out the difference between reflux which is when acid comes up your esophagus and esophagitis which is what happens when acid comes up your stomach enough to cause erosion of the lining of your esophagus. Esophagitis is a great deal more painful and long lasting than just a one time episode of reflux.

Can geographic tongue cause acid reflux?

Can geographic tongue cause acid reflux?

No: A geographic tongue does not cause acid reflux from the stomach. A geographic tongue is probably not capable of causing stomach symptoms... but that doesn't mean a person can't have stomach symptoms and have a geographic tongue at the same time.

Does acid reflux cause upper burning back pain?

Does acid reflux cause upper burning back pain?

It may.: The esophagus is a fairly posterior structure within your chest cavity. Many with acid reflux will feel burning between their shoulder blades in addition to or instead of under their breast bone. If antacid or famotidine or Omeprazole quiets the back "burning", then there is your answer.

Possible: Acid reflux can cause a bad taste, sore throat. I am not sure what you mean by a dry tongue. I hope you are being treated for acid reflux. The acids can badly erode your teeth.
