I'm going through severe stress. Pretty sure I have GERD, but I have the barium swallow coming up. When I eat food and stuff, everything tastes off. My mouth burns. If I drink coke, it literally reacts with my mouth. I'm thinking I might have bile reflux? Anyway, it's so severe. Has anyone gone through this. Sometimes at night it feels like I'm throwing up in my mouth but I'm not. Has anyone had this so bad their mouth was in fire too. What helped you? I have carafe but it literally stings when I take it.

Hi Louise wink

Sounds like it might be reflux, glad your going for the barium. Just had a flare myself last few weeks, my sense of taste was definitely affected this time around. General consensus for reflux is eat very bland soft foods for a bit, smaller meals more often and no alcohol, smoking or sweets or caffeine. Also maybe like me, my stress aggravates it and it is easier said then done however I force myself anyways. I ate mashed potatoes, bananas, soups if you can tolerate it, bottled water only. I say all this but everyone is different in what they can tolerate when they have a flare but this is what's helping me now. I was diagnosed with it by barium couple years ago and this is my second flare. Have you tried over the counter meds yet? You can ask a pharmacist to see what's best for you until you go for test or doctors. I hope this helps more, I'm an email away as well. Feel better soon and keep posting :))
