an unpleasant sour taste in your mouth, caused by stomach acid

some medicines, such as anti-inflammatory painkillers (like ibuprofen)
a hiatus hernia – when part of your stomach moves up into your chest
How you can ease heartburn and acid reflux yourself
Simple lifestyle changes can help stop or reduce heartburn.
Eat smaller, more frequent meals
Raise one end of your bed 10-20cm by putting something under your bed or mattress – to make it so your chest and head are above the level of your waist, so stomach acid doesn’t travel upwards towards your throat
Try to lose weight if you’re overweight
Try find ways to relax
Have food or drink that triggers your symptoms
Eat within 3 or 4 hours before bed
Wear clothes that are tight around your waist
Drink too much alcohol
Stop taking any prescribed medicine without speaking to a doctor first

Lifestyle changes and pharmacy medicines aren’t helping
You have heartburn most days for 3 weeks or more
