Brown spit in the morning?

Anyone else have this? This started happening about a month ago, and every morning I wake up with a horrible taste in my mouth and my spit is brown. It only occurs in the morning, as soon as I brush my teeth my spit color goes back to being clear and stays that way until the following morning. I'm wondering if it has something to do with GP and acid reflux or if it's something else entirely.

I've not had that but maybe it is just food/reflux from the night before?
That might be a good one to get checked out- not that our doctors are all that helpful!

if you are taking pepto bismol or anything with bismuth in it, that is probably the culprit. :)
