Hi there musicsteve...first and foremost, welcome to healingwell. I am glad you found us, as this is an AMAZING place to get information and support!
Late night eating...I can SOOOOO relate to that. I am a late night snacker, and I hate it. Since you have been struggling with acid reflux for many years, you probably know how bad it is to eat before laying down. I am not needing to express that to you, I am sure.
I have several suggestions if you must eat before bed. Try your best to not make it big meals, or even large snacks...keep it as small as possible. Don't eat any of the NO NO foods for GERD, such as acidy things, spicy things, etc...and don't lie down right after eating. Do your best to stay up as long as you can after your snack. I don't know if you are taking any meds for your problem right now, but I would also suggest maybe using a liquid antacid before going to bed. This could possibly reduce your discomfort in the morning.
Well, these are the suggestions I have, I hope others come along with more.
I do wish you all the best, and I hope you stick with us...again, WELCOME!!!!
