so most of my life I have had really bad heartburn off and on, but it's been so bad lately that I can't sleep. I constantly taste acid in my mouth where I can't even lay down. and right now I have such bad bloating and cramps from gas. I can't find any relief between the heartburn and the intense stomach cramps from trapped gas, which has been going on for about 3 days. I would prefer not to take medicine, so is there any laying/relaxing positions that could help, or foods/drinks that can help me with one or both?

      I would try elevating your head a little bit while you sleep. Also sleeping on your left side I believe is also supposed to help. I usually take alka seltzer chewables and I also mix a little bit of baking soda in water and drink that up.

      The stomach cramps depending on the location might not be related. I thought my pain/cramps was from all acid reflux but turns out I have another thing going on in my lower stomach which can also cause reflux problems a bit too. Just something to think about!

      Also, trying to eat foods with less fat helps. Cold things seem to be more soothing to me.

      Hi! I would say to get a wedge to sleep on. It elevates your head so you get less reflux in your sleep.
