Anyone else have a lot of white on the back of their tongue from reflux?  My Dr. said it is from the acid burning, not thrush.  Just curious if anyone else has this?  I can't really get it off, so I think my Dr. is right that the back portion of my tongue is discolored from acid.   Plus if I try to scrape at it with a tongue scraper to get it off, it only lessens a bit and then I taste acid.
 
If you do have it, any advice to help lessen it, other than just waiting for the reflux to get under control?

Hi KatherineG,

Welcome to Healing Well! I'm sorry, but I can't share any information on tongue issues, but hopefully someone will be by soon, who can.

Sorry you're having these problems.

You will probably have to wait until the acid is under control. Right now it's protecting your tongue from the acid.

I have the same thing going on my whole tongue is white and coated. It looks gross I had a Nissen done about a month ago and I still have it so hopefully it goes away soon. You are not alone on this one.

Thanks, Scrappy5. Nice to know it happens to others, although I wouldn't wish any GERD related issues on anyone. Best of luck to you with your recent Nissen.

One more with white tongue! It doesnt really bother me but with you dont like it you can probably buy something for it in the pharmacy...although as Joy said, its a protection for your tongue from the acid so you might want to have it until you get a solution for you acid reflux.
