strange chalky taste in mouth, any ideas?

for the past four days i have had this strange chalky/milk after taste in my mouth, it only comes after i have lunch, normal after breakfast. I have searched the internet and cant find anything except for anatcids causing this, which i have not been taking, or any other type of medication. The only thing that i have changed in my life/diet is that i stopped drinking alcohol shortly before this started. During university i drank quite heavily along with all my course mates, since then , about 2 years, i have always had a beer or two every night after work but nothing to be considered heavy drinking, in my opinion anyway, maybe that is still drinking too much. Due to this i have got worried that i may have problems with my liver! Is this taste a symptom of liver damage/disorder?? I also sometimes have a kind of a dull feeling in my appendix area, i think, below my rib cage on the right just above my belt line, its not an ache or pain, just a funny kind of feeling that i dont know really how to describe. Ofcourse this has added to my worry that it may be something to do with my liver.
I havent been to see a doctor yet, i just want to see if anyone has an opinion that will either stop my worries or make me realise that i do really need to see a doctor, which i'm reluctant to do because me dad went endlessly to the doctor with various breathing difficulties and loss of weight and was given an inhailer and antibiotics cos they said he had a lung infection, he died a month later from lung cancer!
Any ideas would be kindly appreciated!

I don't know about the chalky taste, but the 'funny feeling' you describe reminds me of when I had a hernia in my lower abdomen. It wasn't painful or anything, just a strange feeling like something was loose inside my abdomen, especially when I sat up or curled up.... I have no idea if this is what you're experiencing, but I thought I'd share anyway.
