    I was in a deep sleep, and woke up choking.  I coughed up stomach acid from my airway.  I was having trouble getting air in my airway because of the stomach acid. I'm still having intense burning in my throat and all up and down my esophagus.  I am very weak, and cannot get a deep breath without coughing.  This has happened 3 or 4 times before.  I take 20 mg omeprazole 2 times a day.  Are there tests my dr. should perform to see if my esophagus is damaged?  What can my dr. do to prevent this from happening again?
