Hi yesrod and welcome to HW.. I am glad you found us.. I know some of the problems gerd brings along can be scary but know that you are not alone. I personally do not wake up like that I will wake up choking on the acid coming up.. So I can relate some.. I know my boyfriend at times will be awakened like that.. It usually has to do with what he has eaten that day.. Like Mexican or something really spicy or greasy (sp) will do it to him.. I would keep a diary of when it happens so maybe you can pin point a trigger if there is one.. There isnt one for me but there is for my boyfriend. I would ask my doctor if I needed meds for it if it is bothersome to you.. Remember though we are not doctors by any mean but we are always here to help anytime you need it.. I hope I helped a little... And again Welcome to HW.
