    I think it is related to the GERD...it is very typical to feel pressure in the throat like food is sitting right there.

    Have you friend return to the physician to get a change in medication. No bending at the waist. No food or beverage two hours before bedtime. And consider elevating just the head of the bed 5-6 inches to keep the stomach contents in the stomach.

    You are a great friend...
