As long as I take my medication for heartburn I don't get the acid burning, however, when I lie down, I still notice regurgitation of stomach contents into my throat and mouth. Can anything be done for this?
Your acid symptoms are well controlled with the medication because they prevent the stomach from producing acid. However, you need to reconstitute a high-pressure zone at the esophagogastric junction to prevent regurgitation. Your lower esophageal sphincter is incompetent. This can be corrected with surgery.
