  • Yes happens to me every night. It is easier for the acid to travel up your esphogas when you are horizontal than when you are vertical thats why it gets worse when you lay down.

  • i have the same problem, so when i lay down in bed i tried to have two pillows under my back so the acid cant travel up. just stay proped up if you can sleep like that
