Hi All,

Hope you don’t mind me resurrecting a dead topic.

First of all, Jdubs glad to hear you didn’t have any new problems. How are you doing now?

I’m up at 4 am after an “adrenergic surge” coupled with some mild heartburn. I’ve had heartburn on and off for the past 6 years, but otherwise my digestion is okay. I’ve noticed in the last year or so my throat will kind of feel full and sometimes a light choking/pressure sensation. I thought it might be post-nasal drip, but the ENT I saw ruled out post-nasal drip but said there was some throat inflammation and suggested I take Pepcid Complete.

Being a 180 reader, that’s the last thing I want to do. I guess my question is two fold:

1) What are some things I can do to deal with the symptoms of heartburn when I do wake up in the middle of the night.
2) Where to start looking for triggers?

Thank you,
