Wondering if anyone has similar experience...

Sometimes when I'm asleep I am woken suddenly by the fact that I am choking.

Over time I realised what seemed to be happening is that I am burping up acid.

It comes up, and I guess my first unconscious thing my body does is continues to breahe...and in it goes.

Ever thrown up and it's been super acidic?
That taste is there - Never really any solids though.

It's fucked up, because I'm half asleep and it takes a while for me to actually cough it up and clear my airways.

I sit there on the edge of my bed gasping, trying to breathe IN through the acidic bullshit...between coughing.

There's been more than a few times that I've actually thought I was going to die, because it comes down to...there's liquid sitting where air should go, in my airways.

It's only occasional, but at least once every few weeks.

Acidic foods and eating later in the evening seem to be factors, but not the entirety of them. Sometimes it just happens.

So the last one...wasn't that scary outta 10...but gross. I actually had a glass of water before bed...and that's largely what came up, except this time?
For some reason it came out through my fucking nose.
I basically had to power-sniff/blow my nose til it was cleared.
Painful....and I smelled vomit for the next couple of hours.

I've taken to having some Gaviscon around bed here and there...because yeah, I think in the wrong situation, this could actually kill someone.

Just thought I'd share my "personal hell" situation.

I have certainly had "acid reflux" occasionally and yes, it does get worse with age but nothing like what you are saying and I would think you are still relatively young for this kind of thing. Im sure you are trying all the conventional remedies such as sleeping propped up etc. And the gaviscon is a good idea short term. I would definitely try and make sure i dont eat or drink for at least 2 hours before bed. And get it checked if it doesnt go away. If you were my son thats what i would say.

I have reflux. Doc put me on omeprazole (over-the-counter Prilosec). Take one pill in the morning before you eat anything.

That's good. Some of us have it worse. Basically we have to follow new rules, like not eating after 8pm, especially acidic foods. Putting the head of the bed up 6", maybe moving away from coffee, but might require meds.
