I woke up with acid in my throat and feeling like vomiting.?
It woke me up in the middle of the night. I tried to vomit, but the acid was so bad it burned my throat and I didn’t dare to vomit. I tried clearing my throat, but the acid would come up. What is this?

sounds like you have heartburn. Eat some tums, drink some milk, and you should be ok, I’m not a Dr. but this is what I do in the situation. If it’s constant I would suggest to see your Dr.

Gastroesophageal reflux disease. Sleep with your head propped up slightly, and see a gastroenterologist for appropriate treatment. There are acid blockers like Zantac or Nexxium that will eliminate the problem. Don’t try to live on Tums; that will mask the symptoms but still allow the reflux, which can damage your esophagus. Think of putting battery acid on your skin all the time…

It sounds like you have GERD (acid reflux). This causes the food and digestive acids to flow back up the esophegus and can eat the lining. It is really nothing to fool around with. I have it and it burns up into my ears. You need to be taking something to neutralize the acid.
I take plain white vinegar before meals and that really helps. I can not take the pillls that will help me as I am allergic to one type and the insurance will not pay for the other which starts at $ 50 a month.
See you doctor if you can and if not find a good health store with someone who can help you. Good Luck

You probably have GERD. Look that up on mayoclinic.com if you don’t know what it is. If it’s a recurring thing, some Protonix will fix you right up.
