Indigestion affecting my sleep

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.

Take your dinner before 2 hours you go to bed. And take light and small amount of foods in your dinner plate.

Maybe you have some food intolerances ? I suggest you to have related exams done...

Maybe you can try to eat small meals so your stomach doesn't have to work as hard or as long. And eat slowly. Most important is to make sure to avoid late-night eating.

It could be a reaction to dairy. See the doctor, and try different insights from different doctors. There are medicines you can drink that cure this issue. Try indigestion relief medicines.
