Suffer from heartburn when you go to bed? WebMD gives you tips for the pain and discomfort of nighttime heartburn .
Going to bed on a full stomach makes nighttime heartburn more likely. A full stomach puts pressure on the valve at the top of the stomach, which is supposed to keep stomach acid out of the esophagus. So eat at least 2 to 3 hours before bedtime to give your stomach time to empty. Try early dinners, and avoid snacks at night.
Overeating is a common cause of heartburn. It's better to eat small meals more often. Keep your portions in check. Eat just until your appetite is satisfied but before you feel full. This makes nighttime heartburn less likely and is also good for your weight.
Although people of any size can get heartburn, extra pounds make it more likely. It may add pressure on the valve at the top of the stomach. Trimming down may help with your acid indigestion. And that may mean better sleep at night and less daytime sleepiness.
Jot down what you eat and drink, and look for clues about what triggers your heartburn. Try to avoid those foods for a few days. Later, add them back one at a time, so you can see if they cause trouble.
At night, whether you lift the kids to put them in bed or pick up laundry, bend with your knees when doing evening chores. Bending forward at the waist gives some people heartburn. It's especially important to avoid it in the evening if you tend to get heartburn at night.Read more: WebMD
