Newbie over here. I've been told I've had reflux for a long time. I've just delt with it. Up until last year, I had my first eppisode of awaking at night with the whole chocking deal...so aweful!!!
Since that time, it would happen every once in a while... now pretty much if I eat anything after 6 or 7 I have that feeling and sensation of it starting to come back up, and if I fall asleep, the whole thing starts. It seems like my body now catches it before it gets really bad, but still the waking up, coughing and that bad taste, its aweful. My doctor has me on protroix to help.??? Does that seem to be strong enough for me? Not sure, still experiencing the whole nasty ordeals, but if I eat very light around 6 I'm usually ok.
