Re: Woke up throat on fire
yes, i can help and no, i can't help. i can tell you that it sounds like you experienced the first joys of LPR this morning. the acid reflux made it past your UES and into your throat while you were sleeping. and it irritated it. sleeping on your stomach is not a good idea to prevent the acid flow. try sleeping on your left side. hopefully you'll be lucky and this will never happen again.
that said, no, i can't tell you exactly how to fix it if it reoccurs. do a search on LPR in this forum and you'll find all kinds of anecdotal stories. you could try ppi's or some of the alternative options. lpr seems to confound many and seems to be a tricky thing to manage. i wish i could hand you a magic fix, but i don't have one. all i can do is tell you what happened last night. i hope you stay well.
