I am soooo tired of nothing helping my condition.
 
I do know that I have not been sleeping well...I am wondering if catching up on sleep will solve a lot of my problems.
 
Maybe sleep will higher my immune system and help a lot? 
 
What do you guys think?  Have any of you felt a ton better after sleeping a lot?

friendlygal,

I have definitely noticed a correlation between sleeping well and having less GERD. Not sure if it's the egg before the chicken or the reverse: sometimes I think the reason I'm not sleeping well is the GERD when I wake up in the middle of the night. However, I am getting to bed early tonight - trying to sleep 9-5, and you know what coordination that takes with meals! Another thing that definitely helps me is a hot shower before bed. I think it's also important NOT to take naps during the day - I make sure my stomach is pretty empty at night, will try to get the 8 quality hours of sleep, and leave it at that.

Lonibel, thanks for the reply.

The GERD makes it sooo hard for me to sleep!!  So I end up sleeping during the day on weekends and this cuts into my eating time.  I wonder if I should buy a sleeping pill.  It might really help with the GERD because not sleeping must be what is making it so hard for me to heal!
