Coke and acid refluxI get acid reflux type symptoms 8 - 10 hours after drinking carbonated drinks. Usually start around 8pm and last all night. I will be up every 45 min. and feel like throw up, but usually can stop or only bubbly spit comes up. I get the ball in the throat feeling, belch and pass gas alot. No real pain except tight throat, dificult to swallow at times. No burning though. My stomache is always 'gurgiling' inside as I can hear air/liquids moving around. Believe it or not, if I drink 3-4 beers at night, I can sleep fine! I believe part of my problem is diet as I only eat twice a day (sometimes one big meal only). I use chewing tobacco also which is not good either.
I used to drink coke's all the time, but now even a couple of sips is disasterous for me at night. What course of action should I try?

I presume you live in the US where the national habit is to drink Coke or Coffee. I wonder if you are aware that coke has both Cocaine and Caffeine in its formula including loads of sugar and it has also been found to be addictive perhaps due to the Cocaine.
You would have noticed that after you drink Coke say 4 hours before sleep you are restless and do not enjoy deep sleep.
So why drink Coke at all ?
If you have any gastric reflux symptoms you are advised to use Nat Phos 6x after lunch and dinner.
If you wish to sleep deeply you must not drink Coke at all. You are also advised not to chew tobacco.
Drink up to 5 ltrs of water daily and you will turn over a new page in your life.

I get weak and drink a little coke once in a while and usually pay for it with my listed symptoms. I am american, but live in S. Korea.
