It sounds like you have acid reflux. It may be that bile (the acid that breaks down food in your stomach) is coming up your throat and into your mouth. Lying down can sometimes worsen this problem because it is so much easier for it to travel up the throat. You may have some type of gastric/ stomach problem that is causing this. Until you see a doctor, you could try using an antacid or bicarbonate to relieve the problem.
