In brief: Churn & Burn

A sleep specialist can rule out other causes of disturbed sleep.
Acid reflux is a common culprit and if identified, appropriate treatment can help you obtain more restful sleep. If the specialist does not identify other causes of your sleep problem, a test trial of reflux treatment may be in order. Many times people are unaware of this problem as they sleep but find improvement with medication.
