Bile

I have a wedge pillow, & do things I can to prevent this night 'bile' from coming up, but once in awhile I get hit w/it even on my omeprazole. Can anyone tell me when it happens to you, how do you get rid of the burning, that terrible taste etc? We all know water just makes it more devastating. Milk is a bit better also yogurt, or liquid antacids, but I have stayed up 3 hours in the night trying to get the horrible burning & taste to stop or leave. Any advice that works, or does one just suffer it out?

    Hi dix,you can take liquid Antacid. After maintaining all the things that your doctor advised you, if you still suffer from heart burn frequently then you should talk to your doctor. i think everything will be fine.

    Thanks everyone for replies, I will try coconut water. It's my fault when this happens. I either ate to close to bedtime or slept on my right side. I have my 2 yr. EGD coming up, hope I haven't made this worse. It's just when it does happen I need something to cut the misery faster. Maybe your right on coconut, I do have the oil, maybe I will swallow it!

    Hi  dix

    I recognise all too well what you are going through.  When this has happened to me I find sipping a slippery elm capsule dissolved in warm water quite soothing and it will also protect your esophagus from any damage.  If it is burning badly then I will have a few sips of cold  milk before that,

    If I have eaten a particularly heavy meal and it is near bedtime then I will take a digestive enzyme which breaks down the food quite well.

    It is horrible when it wakes you up choking !

    Hope this helps
