Yep, that's why we tell people who are having or just had a nissen to drink something warm before eating or after. It also helps to make sure all the food gets through and not have a small amount sitting at the wrap and fermenting. This causes a lot of people to think they are refluxing again after a few weeks post nissen.
Cold drinks will cause it to tense up and make it harder to get food past.
