ok this is my first time posting my probs online but im tired of feeling this way.for a while now when i go to bed at night as soon as i lay down it feels like something comes midway up my throat and i cant completely swallow after that unless i sit up for about 20mins. as soon as i sit up i instantly get lots of air coming up and whatever it was is gone.most times i even wake up choking and about to hurl! i hate this feeling cause i have very restless nights because of it. im also getting major heartburn from just about anything i eat. if anyone has any info it would be greatly appreciated. thanks

yep it is probably acid reflux - do you eat late at night or lay down not to long after you eat and also prilosec the equate brand at walmart is cheaper it is over the counter and if you start using it helps for that and repairing

It's a good possibility that it is acid reflux disease. The fact that it is recurring for a long period of time indicates that you need to seek medical attention asap to look for a deeper issue.

It sounds like you are suffering from acid reflux or bronchial asmtha or both. I have dealt with acid reflux for many years. I have been on lots of different prescription acid reducers and acid blokers. At this time I take Omeprazole, I buy it ove the counter at Walmart. It works for me and my doctor approves. The bronchial asmtha I have is controled with singulair and an Advair inhaler. The symptoms you are having are not normal and you should se a doctor about it. I got to the point I was waking vomiting and choking stomach acid and whatever I had eaten that day. It is miserable. Don't let yourself get to that point. See a doctor soon.
