Sleep Apnea and Acid Reflux
Hello, I usually post on the Acid Reflux board but thought somebody here might be able to help me. I have had acid reflux for about 5 years (99% of the time when I sleep). I noticed before when the reflux was bad I was waking up unable to breathe. I then started Prilosec and Pepcid. It all went away. 3 months ago I started again waking up unable to breathe but I really haven't noticed any acid reflux (maybe slight sore throat but nothing like before). Also my blood pressure has shot through the roof (I'm on blood pressure meds now. My question is, does anybody know if Sleep Apnea causes Acid Reflux or is my Acid Reflux causing Sleep Apnea?
