Every night I end up waking up from Stomach Acid coming up my throat and into my nose!?
Could this kill me. Could I drowned in this crap. It burns my throat and hurts like mad. I stop eating 5 hours before I go to sleep my diet is mostly veggies and beans and lean meats. I do not eat spicy foods. I have coffee only in the morning and drink water the rest of the day. I have had a Gastric Lap Band for 5 years but lately this odd thing has been happening. Ever since I got food posioing and threw my guts up this has been happening and it is freaking me out.
I had food posioning last Tuesday and this is when this started happening.
Thank you I have just called my Doctor to go see him.

Chronic heartburn is usually from acid reflux - stomach acid is getting past the little valve and into your esophagus. You also should know some natural ways to treat your heartburn. Learn them here
The most immediate thing you can do is to stop drinking coffee and cola. Smoking is not good either, but that might be harder to stop. Don't over-eat. Don't lie down too soon after eating. Don't burp too much - this carries acid up with the burp.
heartburn the most common symptom of acid reflux disease (also known as gastroespohageal reflux disease, or GERD). Heartburn feels like a burning pain in the center of the chest. It is caused by acid from the stomach backing up into the esophagus. is a symptom of acid reflux disease (GERD) Also known as Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

I had acid reflux that was that bad it paralysed one of my vocal cords, gave me sinusitus and caused damage in my stomach, Learn here how I cure it
I was prescribed Lansoprazole which was brilliant but after two years of aching joints, extreme muscle pain which the doc gave me cortisone jags for, with some research I discovered the drug Lansoprazole was causing these rare side effects but it was I who diagnosed it NOT my doctor, I came off the drug 2 months ago, changed my diet and discovered just eating an apple stops any acid reflux, I eat an apple before bed, brilliant no acid, any time I feel the slightest sign of reflux I simply eat an apple.
Apple juice is not that good nor is anything else I have tried including honey at stopping reflux.
Apple is a god send for keeping acid at bay, brilliant!

Sounds like particularly bad Acid Reflux (GERD). I don't think I've ever heard of it being fatal by itself, but the acid can damage your throat, mouth and sinuses, and can lead to throat cancer down the road if left untreated.
You should speak to your doctor as soon as possible about taking a proton-pump inhibitor, like Nexium or something else. Taking one of these daily stop this from happening, and usually after 2 months you should no longer need to take it.Source(s): I also had GERD, and I am a cancer researcher.

You have some very bad acid reflux, for temporary relief get some Prilosec ( you can buy that over the counter) and go see your gastroenterologist and hopefully you can get an endoscopy to check out the problem.
