I have recently had a Gastroscopy and am waiting for Biosy results. Am on medication but am really suffering at night with heartburn. Have a wedge under mattress and am not going to bed on a full stomach. 

What about drinking at night does this make it worse?

    Hi I am no expert but I have read nothing to eat for 3 hours before bed

    and nothing to drink for 2 hours before bed. Others on the forum may

    be able to tell you what they do. Do you take anything at night before

    bed like Gaviscon advance?

      Hello Sorry I can't be of more help.  I hope that you get your biopsy results very soon and that everything is ok.  I hope you can find some relief from your symptoms as well. Good luck.
