Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and am ready to help.

it could be from acid relfux of stomach up to the back of your throat. this is most likely.
stomach acid medication might help this

it could be from gum disease and cavities. dental care could help this.

it could be from h pylori stomach infection. antibiotic treatment would be needed for this

for all of these diagnosis, more testing and confirmation would be needed. it would be best for you to talk to your doctor about these possibilities causing your bitter taste in your mouth.
