Why might my reflux have come back?

I have only ever suffered reflux when pg; I am definitely not, and for the past couple of weeks, I have had it again. I have not changed my diet so it seems really weird. Some nights it has been so bad that I have woken with vomit coming out of my nose sad

I only ever had it when pregnant, then found I was having it a lot of the time - especially at night, lying down. I tried omeprazole, but it came back when I stopped, so then had an endoscopy - discovered a hiatus hernia (probaby caused by pregnancy) and have taken one Ranitidine at bedtime ever since.

Go and see your GP, there is probably a very similar explanation, but it shouldn't go untreated!

ooh, that sounds scary, mine is much worse at night and is marginally better when I am propped right up.

looks like a trip to the GP sad thanks eilbean - what do they do for a hernia?
