Hey. I was stupid enough to eat something within an hour of going to sleep on Thursday night, and ever since have had a sore throat, which I think must be due to acid going up my oesophagus. Just wondering if anyone has any tips on what helps? Fortunately I don't get it reaching my throat very often, only if I eat too late.

Try some malox or galvascon. It may soothe you.

A doctor I know says he takes 5000mg of calcium (5x the RDA) at night before going to be in order to prevent acid reflux.

Thanks. I can't take any meds that suppress stomach acid though, it only makes my symptoms worse. Hopefully the sore throat will pass soon...never again will I eat just before going to bed :(

Judy02, does your tongue ever feel like you drank something to hot?

Hi there, no it doesn't... I tried eating some manuka honey and it seems to have healed my throat :) Now just to get rid of my indigestion in my stomach again...sticking to this GERD diet is SO hard sometimes, but yet it's got to be worth it if it gets me feeling better. It's just taking me a long time to learn.

Natural remedies and dietary changes seem to work best for me. Anything a doctor has prescribed has either been ineffective or has made my symptoms worse :S

Did your doctor ever prescribe Carafate Suspension? It's not an antacid, but rather, just coats your esophagus and stomach lining.
Just a thought...

Hmmm, nope. I've never mentionned my sore throat to him though as I've not had it very often. If I keep getting problems though I'll look into it though, thanks! :)
