BAD TASTE IN MOUTH

Can you tell me if there is anything other than gerd that would cause you to have a bad (sour) taste in your mouth and have excessive saliva?  Thanks

Hi Momm7975,
There are various cause for excessive salivation other than GERD - neurological problems, local infection, certain medications, dental probelms etc..

Local infections and medications can also cause bad taste in the mouth.

I have a simular problem. I have a bad taste in the mouth and at times, I burp up a mouth full of saliva.  It's the strangest thing.  If I press down on my throat or chest I burp a very strange sound.  Its like a very deep burp that comes up with little effort to no effort at all, just a gentle push on my chest or the side of my throat brings it up.
