Rough night…

Didn’t feel very good during the night. I get regular attacks of acid reflux. My varied diet, allied to some elements of stress, cause almost daily issues of heartburn.

Last night, I was trying to go to sleep when a very sick and nauseous feeling started to take over. The sick feeling rose up through my stomach and I thought of running to the toilet to expel whatever was there. Then I burped four or five times in rapid succession, and there was the most vile acidic taste in my throat. Really odd, as I hadn’t drank or eaten much during the day. It felt as though something was stuck and needed to be expelled.

Frightening feeling for a while. I tried to go back to sleep so the feeling would wear off. It didn’t, so I went to the cupboard to mix a spoonful of baking soda in some water and I downed that. To my relief, the horrible feeling subsided and I drifted off to sleep finally. When I woke, I was a bit grumpy and without a full quota of sleep, a bit bleary eyed. But I’m ok now.
