Suggest treatment for bloating of stomach

Hi, I am always thirsty and have a strong metallic taste in the back of my mouth. I feel very bloated my stomach muscles get very sore. I have been tested for diabetes and I do not have it. My back has just recently started aching I am not sure if this has to do with how bloated I feel.

The possible causes of feeling thirsty and having a metallic taste in the mouth are:
1. Post nasal drip
2. Gum abscess
3. Bleeding gums
4. Glossitis
5. Dehydration
6. Gastro-esophageal reflex disease
7. Drugs Metronidazole or Iron tablets

Avoid spicy food and alcohol avoid smoking, use tablet Nexium before breakfast for one week. If symptoms not improved, please consult your doctor, he/she will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
