In brief: Reflux (LPR)
You may have acidic regurgitation into your throat, known as laryngopharyngeal reflux (lpr).
This can affect young people, and mostly the causes are dietary in nature. You should review your diet and make sure you limit the amount of caffeine, chocolate, peppermint, spicy foods, tomato, citrus, peanutbutter, and alcohol. Also tobacco smoking worsens reflux.

In brief: Reflux,heartburn
The most common cause of a bike sate at night is astro-esophageal reflux disease (gerd).
It is caused by acid in the stomach coming through a muscular "door" (sphincter) and coming all the way up to the back of the throat. It can also cause heartburn. Caffeine and nicotine make it worse, and obesity can aggravate it.Don't eat/drink before bed, elevate head of bed, eat smaller amounts can help.
