I noted this once before but wanted to bring it up again. I get a feeling of reflux often when I breathe in deep at night. I had had a few nights w/o it but last night it was brutal, had it every time I woke up. It usually goes away in the later morning (4am on, say). Has anyone had this confirmed as heartburn? It feels like you are breathing in with a mint in your mouth, or in very cold air. I just don't understand why the more air I take in, the stronger the symptom is. It should have no relation in my mind...

On another note I have been drinking a lot of skim milk before bed, and I mean A LOT, to get calories. Last night was the one night I didn't and boom, I got heartburn. It seems to me my nightime heartburn has gone down significantly since I started drinking like 1/3 of a gallon of milk before bed, just wanted to put that out there. I have no rhyme or reason to it but with the erratic nature of my reflux, this is the one thing I have been able to positively identify as having an impact (positive or negative)

Good Morning,
 
Just my own personal advice - lose all that milk you are drinkingbefore bed.   You may have a milk allergy that never bothered you until you started drinking a lot of skim milk before bed.  I cannot tolerate custard anymore and if I weaken and have some before bedtime I pay dearly with severe acid reflux.  I used to eat it whenever I felt like it a couple of years ago.  Adverse reactions to milk are not only allergy-related, but may also result from lactose sugar.
 
Just a thought.  :)

Hi ARM,

So you're saying you were better having the milk but when you missed it out you woke up with heartburn. I think the only way forward on that one is to try a few nights back on the milk, then miss it out again and see if the same thing happens. If milk is protective for you, for whatever reason, then go for it!
