If you have reflux problems, they may suggest you get a special pillow to lift your head up while you are sleeping. They will tell you not to drink caffein (some sodas have caffeine) coffee or regular tea and not to smoke. You should not be overweight. You must avoid all the foods that cause your symptoms to act up, for me that is tomato sauce and orange juice. though I can have a tomato or an orange with no problem. Some also have problems with peppermint. You should not eat greasy or fatty foods. They may suggest you only have small meals rather than big meals and not to sleep after eating. You can sleep after 3 or 4 hours after eating. The whole thing is a bit much to take but just do your best. Take care of yourself and good luck.
