I Cant Sleep Because I Wake Up With My Throat And Chest Burning

I wake up in the middle of the night with a real bad burning sensation and whatever it is in my mouth taste horrible plus it gives me a very bad cough which leads to me throwing up. This happens almost every other day. Ive been taking medicine for heartburn already for a very long time and ive also changed it a few times because it feels like I need something stronger after awhile. I have no clue whats going on. Can someone help with this?

Answer

Because you are being treated for reflux but are not getting relief you need to go back to your doctor and discuss this. I realize this is easier said than done but you don't want to ignore your symptoms and put yourself at risk for Barrett's esophagus or an ulcer.

It may help if you keep a log of your diet, your medication routine and your symptoms. Doctors tend to be better able to treat us when given "data" to work with.
