    Try not to sleep completely flat. If you can prop your upper body up a bit with pillows it will help a bit. Avoid fatty, acidic and spicy foods. Avoid caffeine, carbonated drinks and alcohol. Aloe vera juice is supposed to be good but it can have a laxative effect. I would avoid all fruit and anything with sugar in it for a few days. Google alkaline foods lists and go to images look through a few and find ones with what to avoid on them as well as what you can eat.

    Because as the name suggests it is an "ACID" reflux I use a bit of Bicarbonate of Soda (strong alkaline) dissolved in water and sip that as an attack starts. Minutes later it has stopped.

    NOTE: I am not talking about a lot of Bicarbonate of Soda, say 1/4 teaspoon in half a glass of water then just sip it till the pain goes.
