Chronic acid reflux is one of the main causes of sleep disturbance in middle-aged Americans. Awakened by the radiating pain of heartburn, many individuals who’ve been diagnosed with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), or have been suffering the symptoms, are more likely to experience debilitating insomnia and daytime fatigue.
In fact, the National Sleep Foundation says that adults who do not seek treatment for acid reflux and heartburn have a greater chance of suffering from ailments like sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome. The main culprit in GERD patients is the backflow of stomach acids into the esophagus and throat – a problem that is painfully exacerbated when lying down at night.
The good news is that – beyond OTC and prescribed heartburn medications — a few simple lifestyle changes can help acid reflux sufferers get a decent night’s sleep.
If you’re one of the 15 million American adults who grapple with symptoms of heartburn and GERD, consider the following advice for some nighttime relief.
There’s no doubt that acid reflux and heartburn can greatly reduce your quality of sleep, which has a ripple effect on the rest of your life.
