Dear Jacustomer,

I am sorry to know about your symptoms,

Based on what you mentioned,I will advise that you ask your physician to do a physical exam,serum tsh,fasting blood glucose as impaired fasting blood glucose may cause blurry vision,weakness fatigue ,imbalance of thyroid hormone can present with fatigue,pain and weakness as you described.
The metallic taste in your mouth does seem to be due to underlying reflux disease,so I will advise that you take over the counter prilosec(omeprazole) which will take care of it.This medication is more efficacious than ranitdine.
