It's dangerous, but this isn't the first time I've heard of people with GERD aspirating into the lungs.
Hi Bob...I have to agree with Furballsmom that aspirating into the lugs is dangerous, but acid...please call ur dr asap and tell them about this.
U may have a motility issue with ur LES...dairy products can slow it down more so do try and avoid dairy in late afternoon and evening.
Plus, do u have the head of ur bed elevated?...if not u will want to do this by getting blocks to put under the frame...using pillows does not work.Being elevated helps with gravity to keep the acids down where they belong.
Again, please call ur dr and update us on ur progress.
