I'm new here. For months now I wake up in the morning with heartburn and feeling queasy. I've had different tests done and everything is fine. I do have acid reflux and anxiety issues. I take Prilosec for the reflux. And a mild dosage of Xanax. I guess I'm wondering if anybody has any suggestions that might help. It's so annoying waking up and wondering am I going to feel sick this morning? I don't know if its just a combo of the reflux and anxiety? I don't eat anything after 8 pm. Thanks.

Welcome to Healing Well.

The nausea is a very common symptom of GERD. There are meds to help with the nausea. Talk with your GI or PCP about the nausea and ask for an anti nausea meds such as Zophran or Phenergan, etc. I have used Phenergan for several years with very good results.
Sometimes they prescribe Reglan as it moves food out of the stomach faster, but can have some bad side effects. Have you tried having a couple crackers near your bed to eat when you wake up? Sometimes just getting something small in your stomach in the morning can help too.

Take care,
Bill

Thanks. I will try having a couple crackers. I will also mention to my doctors about the anti-nausea meds. I think my doctors just think its anxiety related. Thanks again.
