Aspiration and GERD

IL60477 posted:
I sometimes wake up at night gasping for air due to what feels like aspiration of acid that has backed up from my GERD. These bouts are frightening and cause such violent vomiting and wretching that my stomach muscles will ache for many days. They also cause me to sleep very lightly out of fear of recurrences, causing unrestful sleep. Does anybody else experience this?
