I suffer from acid reflux. I have had it under control and have been doing fairly well after having had used Nexxium for about a year. I stopped drinking orange juice and have cut down to just one cup of coffee a day. I also drink aloe juice (about 3 oz.) about 4 times a week. In the last two weeks, I have noticed a horrible metallic taste in my mouth. I can't seem to get rid of it. I have battled with constipation all of my life, have tried quite a few things and am now on Miralax. The aloe juice has helped in that respect as well. I have noticed, however, that besides the strange taste in my mouth (and by the way, I have not altered my very healthy eating habits) when I lay in bed at night on my back, I feel something really strange on the left side of my stomach by my belly button. It feels like when I was pregnant and the baby moved. After that sensation, I feel a tightness, like a hard area and then it relaxes and goes away. Could it be nerves? I haven't gone to see a dr. b/c I don't feel ill except for these side effects. I would appreciate any suggestions you may have or what these symptoms reflect, if anything.
