refluxsux (great name!) - I have the same problem! My GERD is many times worse if I don't have food in my stomach. I don't know why, but it is.
I also find that when I am too tired I have worse GERD too. Compound that with an empty stomach and I'm miserable :(
Pan-colitis and GERD diagnosed May 2003
Asacol 12 per day, Azathioprine 75mg, Rowasa and Canasa as needed
Aciphex, Effexor XR, BCP, Rhinocort nasal spray
Culturelle, Biotin, Folic Acid, Forvia, Calcium, and B12
Osteopenia (hip and spine) from prednisone use. Started Azathioprine because I was steroid dependent.
