It’s so hard to sleep with anxiety at night but I suffer with acid reflux and it’s a battle every night to get some decent sleep and I hope I get better soon can’t keep putting up with his for so long it’s taking me into depression 🤦‍♂️

Im in the same situation...I dont know whats worse the physical symptoms of anxiety or the acid reflux especially when you've eaten something that your stmach does not agree with. Its like either the anxiety or the symptoms is bad one day and the acid reflux is bad the next. Like they tag team us so we wont ever have a decent DAMN day.

I've got the same acid reflux. It's horrible. Had to change every thing I eat and drink. I do get sleep now due to the antidepressant tablets I have. X

🙁 sorry. I battle the same thing. My doctor has me on Pantoprazole for my acid reflux.... which has greatly helped. When I get extra bad anxiety my acid reflux does act real bad too. I know they recommend not eating for like 2 hours (+?) before bed & to sleep on a wedge pillow to help with night time acid reflux problems. Not sure if you've tired either.... breathing exercises help too.

I'm on day 14 of Lexapro which calmed me down but it made my reflux seriously flare. So much that I can't eat. I'm going to switch meds I believe. I sleep on my left to try and prevent the reflux then I get muscle pain and trigger points from laying on that side all of the time. 🙄 Not to mention the chest pains that come with it.
