Nighttime reflux complains

About 10% of all people have nighttime reflux complaints. Reflux can cause ulcerations, Barrett’s esophagus, strictures and even cancer.

Sleep on the right side

When sleeping on the right side, stomach acid has an easy path up to the esophagus and into the throat and causes a painful sensation.

Sleep on the left side

When sleeping on their left side, the stomach is positioned below the esophagus and gravity works to keep acid in the stomach and the pain goes away
