Eat your big meal at lunch instead of at dinnertime.
Eat at least two to three hours before lying down. Eliminate late-night snacking.
Avoid foods that are known to lead to heartburn.
Sleep with your head and shoulder on an incline.
Make sure your bed clothes are loose-fitting.
Sleep on your left side. Studies have shown that this position aids digestion and helps with the removal of stomach acid. Sleeping on the right side has been shown to worsen heartburn.

You need to talk to another doctor. Preferably a Gastoenterologist. I suffered from the same thing for years. Reflux can lead to an erosion of the esophagus. Also to a condition called Barretts Esophagus which is precancerous. I have been taking daily meds for almost 2 years now. No more symptoms.

It is best to sleep on your back elevated with a pillow. THis is the best way to do it. Good luck..
