When motility disorders Biliary bile can stagnate in the biliary tract due to lack of muscle contraction or spasm of the muscles due to biliary tract when they are too strong reduction (biliary tract dyskinesia on hypotonic or hypertonic type). If such congestive bile abruptly ejected from overflowing gallbladder, then sharply reduced muscle duodenum and stomach, resulting in bile may enter the esophagus and thence to the mouth, causing bitterness.
