I never have had it before,
Ive had a sore throat about 3 weeks now, then last night I got woken up with acid in my mouth....so how do I stop this?
-stop eating hour before bed
lots of foods to avoid here,
I'm gonna stop eating before bed and lose weight(damn, being fat leads to problems and I'm not that fat(40ishlbs) I see people in public who are 100lbs+ how do they deal with being fat, much less wipe their ass
a) Do NOT eat at least 3 hours before bed.
b) Try putting a few 2x4's under the head of the bed, raising it about 4 inches, so that you are sleeping at an angle.
c) Trying eating more 'alkaline' for a month, eliminating fatty/acidic trigger foods such as chocolate / nuts / oranges / tomato sauce
( see: http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/11/07/tired-of-feeling-the-burn-low-acid-diet-may-help/?_r=0 )
d) There's some testing you can do to make sure you do have GERD - but I would hold off until you ensure lifestyle changes are not helping.
e) Take this seriously. Your esophagus is fragile.
