  Hi and welcome to the GERD forum.

It is possible that something u eat or drink may be triggering the acids .....so avoid the spicy, greasy acidic foods, and carbonated , caffeinated and alcoholic bevs.

Do not eat for 3 to 4 hrs b4 laying down and elevate the head of ur bed as this will allow gravity to help hold the acids down.

Exercise is important- so just try walking for now- see a Dr and find the root cause of these issues,.

For more tips see the health Pages -http://www.medhelp.org/health_pages/list?cid=236

   So sorry you are suffering so... You might want to see an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist.  You could have a pocket in your esophagus.  

       Hope you find a solution soon.
