You need to see a gastroenterologist or a gastric surgeon for advice.

Talk to your treating doc, you will need to be evaluated in order to decide if your symptoms are solely due to worsening reflux at night versus other condition or a mixture. Specifically if you had tests, such as an upper endoscopy following up with same group will be best.
