From my understanding, just because you spray reflux even in an upright position, it doesn't mean that you'll not benefit from a raised head of bed. My asthma doc, who is very knowledgable in the field of LPR recommends a raised head of bed--actually even post-surgery, which I'm sure wouldn't make you happy. (I've been on this forum for 4 years and I'm the only one I've ever heard of who doesn't go back to a flat bed post-surgery. It's just because I have asthma, and the tinest reflux can cause problems to sensitive lung tissue.)
PS...for maximum protection, raise the bed 7-8".
