    Heavy phlegm when I drink milk or fruit juice.

    Every time I drink fruit juice (especially citrus fruits), eat these fruits or drink milk, I have to quickly go to the sink to spit up large phlegm. It happens a few sips after another. Why? Is it a gastric acid problem or something like that?
