Indigestion affecting my sleep

Postby RaymanSpyro on Wed Oct 02, 2019 5:42 pm

Hello all,

I've always had a very sensitive digestive system. For years, I've followed a careful diet - limited red meat, plenty of fish, vegetables and fruit. Now and again I have a bit of chocolate, cake and stuff like that.
Not often.

For about a year, I've been waking up really early in the morning with belching and indigestion. Sometimes I get back to sleep again, but sometimes I don't. Blood tests and routine checks haven't revealed anything worrying, but it's really disturbing me.

Things like pastry and cake seem to have an extra impact - anything flour based. But they aren't the only things that do it.

Digestion is generally fine during the day. It's just at night that there's a problem. Usually at the same time - about 5:30ish.

I wonder if people have got any advice?

Thanks all.
