Does anyone out there have the problem of aspiration during sleep? I had it happen again last night. Jumped out of bead coughing and trying to breathe. The fluid from my stomach went into my lungs. By the grace of God, after much coughing, the fluids came up out of my lungs. I have had aspiration pneumonia twice before, but last night's episode almost drowned me on the spot. I am on Prevacid and Sucralfate, I don't often have spicy food, the head of my bed is elevated. I have had reflux for 2 years and told I had a hernia in Oct. 2007. Any suggestions?
