 I wake up every morning at 6:30 in the morning with stomach pain and chest pain most of the time I have acid reflex and when I get out of bed it does go away but I cannot stay in bed I cannot go back to sleep because the pain will stay with me so it has something to do with  laying down now and take a nap in the afternoon for about one hour and I wake up with pain then to this is been happening for over two years

    For a few years I would wake up with stomach/chest pain. Sometimes I would wake up with acid coming up my throat and I'd chock on it. I talked to my doc, they did a sleep study on me. I found out I had sleep apnea. They explained to me that when I would quit breathing my stomach would basically start pumping up towards my lungs to get me breathing, that's why I had pain and acid reflux.

      I do have acid reflex doctors have been no help whatsoever I have had many CT scan which showed a normal no blockage in the: one doctor did a blood test on  Ulcers  it showed I did not have one in the last two years I didn't know you could do that with the blood test but I guess you can I was taken to probiotics the last two years I stop doing that because that was no help I was putting fiber in my coffee for the past two years two and that really didn't help  I am taking sodium bicarbonate it for my acid I do not have any luck with doctors that all they know not explain anything to you of going to five gastrologist I have one thing on their mind   Make the big money on a colonoscopy they do not want to talk about anything else I took a 40 minute nap this afternoon will go up with terrible pain but it's gone now  But I do sleep through the night and I wake up five minutes later this the pain in my stomach and I could not stay in bed I have to get up and it goes away thank you for listening

      Hi you would be better taking Gaviscon before going to sleep as it coats the throat and helps stop the acid rising up while you sleep. Also sleep laying on your left side which helps stop the acid coming back up from your stomach. Good luck.
