you should be telling your doctor

you need to get your acid reflux symptoms into better control

stomach acid is very strong and stomach acid coming up to your throat and mouth can cause burning, sore throat, bad breath, white tongue, sore tongue,

if you have runny nose, allergies, post nasal drip, this can also cause mucus in your mouth as well

you may need to change your diet and use stomach acid reducers to help decrease stomach acid.

how old are you?

do you drink alcohol? this can worsen acid reflux.

you may need testing again for H Pylori to see if this is back and causing excessive stomach acid.
