Just curious about that.  I don't usually suffer from heartburn as I keep a rigid diet, free of anything that could trigger the pain, but I still wake up with that awful acid taste.  Can reflux or any other disorder cause the acid? Someone on this board has to have the same symptoms. Thanks.

I never ever have heartburn but have horrible acid reflux.  I honestly think they are 2 different things entirely.  The ads confuse you because they are all for heartburn.
My acid reflux has gotten worse even though I lost a lot of weight.  The acid in the morning is bad even though I sleep with the upper part of my body elevated.  It just never goes away.  Tums helps me though.  Zantac did not.

I don't get heartburn either but I do get a pain which is on my left and the doctor told me that this does happen sometimes. I also suffer with bad taste in my mouth and various throat problems. Once I started on the PPI there was a significant improvment and somedays I don't get any problems at all and others (like today) are not good, even though I watch what I drink and eat.

Even with the daily does of the PPI I still get reflux attacks sometimes and can never workout what triggered them off.
