My burning throat

About three or four times a month I wake up during the night with severe burning in the center of my throat.  This causes me to have involuntary coughing fits which in turn cause me to vomit.  I assumed I was brining up bile, but noticed it is quite viscus.  I also bring up phlem.  Two years ago I had hiatal hernia surgery.  It was a very large hernia.  The throat burn began several months after the surgery.  They may or may not be connected.  I've had two Endoscopies, both were clear.  I take Omeprazole twice daily, but it doesn't stop the problem.   I don't know what to do and could use some input.

Possibly something your eating the nite before?..You could have Lactose intolerance. Try Lactaid pills if your eating dairy products. Good Luck

You could have lactose intolerance--stay away from dairy to see if it gets better. Even reflux meds at times don't help with dairy products..Buy the Lactose pills before dairy..Good luck
