2. Bad Taste in the Mouth
Having a bad taste in the mouth is another sign of hiatal hernia. When some of the substances present in the stomach move back up to the throat and sometimes to the mouth, sufferers may experience a change in taste or even bad taste in the mouth. Patients who suffer from acid reflux due to hiatal hernia may encounter an odd sourness or bitterness during an attack.
The discomfort can be eased by rinsing your mouth or gargling often to eliminate the unpleasant taste. Although this symptom does not specifically cause any pain, it can be very distressing for people who experience it, as food taste is altered and may sometimes cause appetite loss.
