6 Uncommon Symptoms of Acid Reflux


According to gastrointestinal researchers at the Mayo Clinic, acid reflux remains among the top health conditions plaguing North Americans. It’s certainly true that most of us have experienced that telltale burning bubbling up in our throat or behind our breastbone after a decadent meal followed by too much Netflix and chill.

1. Sour Taste

Research published by the American Journal of Medicine claims that stomach acid rebounding back up into the esophagus can cause a bitter, foul, or sour taste in your mouth and in the back of the throat.

In fact, HealthCentral.com says that “silent reflux” is the term used by medical professionals to explain the regurgitation of stomach contents and acids back up into the mouth and esophagus.
