I can't say this is a problem for me... but just the other night I had a similar situation... I had made home made trail bologna and that night for dinner I just had trail and cheese and well as a few beers. Later than night, for the first time since I have been diagnosed, I had acid reflux. Basically I had gas bubbles and pains in my chest. Burping relieved them. When I tried to go to bed it got really bad. I took 2 gas-X and propped myself up with 3 pillows. I was able to sleep then. Next morning... lot of extra gas with morning BM. but other wise it was a normal BM. No problems since. So... maybe try gas_x and the pillow trick? hope this helps.
