Reflux - Burned Throat - How much time takes to heal?

I have been on nexium 20mg on morning and feel no reflux at all during day.
But in the past 2 weeks i have awoken sometimes at night with burned throath feeling just 1 hour after going to sleep.

( i sleep on a bed with 20cm elevation on head side, had light dinner and wait 3 hours to sleep after finishing dinner)

How much time will it take to heal normally? Is there anything that may help to a faster recovery?

I started to sleep now in a 45º angle inclination for the upper body and giving a 4 hour interval instead of a 3 hour, hopping it stops this from happening again.

Try taking your Nexium in the evening instead.
I always took mine at night except for when I was on 20 mg twice a day
and then I took one in the morning and evening.
Maybe you need a stronger dose,
