    Every day if I am sitting here at the computer.

    Very, very mild heartburn.

    Well....no, other than that I can taste it.

    They are slightly discoloured anyway because I used to smoke, so I probably wouldn't notice.

    Yes, and then I burp biley froth.

    Not that I know of.

    A few weeks ago I was sitting watching TV and I got an urge to cough....after I had coughed my mouth filled with bile and stomach acid, I remember the taste was horrible and I had to run and wash it out. Then for the next half an hour I coughed up more bile, but it didn't happen again.

    I might have too much magnesium in my diet, do you think that could be a factor?

    Sounds like gastro-esophageal reflux; its very common in the UK, which is why I asked you all those questions; sometimes the muscles of the sphincter between the oesophagus and stomach get loose and this causes the food to reflux.

    You should see a doctor to check it out. It is usually managed by eating smaller meals and avoiding the stuff that can promote reflux (cigarettes, fatty foods, carbonated beverages, citrus juices, alcohol, chocolate, peppermint, tomato juice).

    You don't eat spicy stuff anyway so that is not a problem. Reflux at night is worse so it is good that you don't have it. The acid and pepsin which is normally present in the stomach can "eat" away at your oesophagus and cause inflammation.

    Better see your doc, asap.

    ... and when playing guitar.

    It could be caused physically - if you are tensed up while sitting, or if you are slouching, bending forward - causing the stomach to be pressured.
    Adding to this is that you are concentrated - and thus possibly even more tense.

    I get uncomfortable sensations in the abdomen too, sometimes even acid reflux. It happens when I am all squeezed up at the desk.

    Get a good chair, sit up straight, place the computer screen and the keyboard so that you won't need to put yourself in physically uncomfortable positions when typing and reading.

    I do hope G. F. Schleebenhorst is okay by now.
    Or at least that he comes back to this thread.
