No, he did not examine me nor look down my throat and no medication prescribed. I'd actually gone for something else (penile ache). I've since had a urinary scan at the hospital which tested okay and have had no further problems.
The taste is constant - bitter/nasty at the back of my throat.
I take 3 types of medication for blood pressure, 10mg Ramipril, 5mg Nebivolol and 20mg Simvastatin daily.
Many thanks for your comments.
Your mention of acid "reducing" medication may help but my understanding is that having too little stomach acid and having too much stomach acid both display similar symptoms and as a postscript I did try a brief 4 day supplement of Betaine HCL with pepsin (last day took 4 x 324mg Betaine HCL and 50mg Pepsin).
I did not get any burning or heat at all therefore may this suggest low stomach acid and should that have a different type of medication?
Could Diabetes be a possibility ?, my father has diabetes, if that is relavent.
No, I did not have any tests for either.
