Possibly: This could be gastroesophageal reflux disease (gerd). Usually symptoms worsens when lying down, particularly after a large late night meal. Risk factors for men in particular are obesity, tobacco use and alcohol consumption, as well as dietary factors such as the intake of caffeinated beverages and foods. Symptomatic treatment with antacids and changing eating habits, may suffice.
