... Hi there
Many thanks for your reply.
I have noticed certain foods make it worse -
pizza, cheese, tomatoes, milk, eggs, garlic, onions, chocolate, tea.......
However, even when I avoid these things the taste is still present - almost constantly but lessened. Would that be possible with GERD?
Thank you :) (6 replies)
