Reflux, raise the bed

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

Has anyone found it best to raise the head of the bed 4" or 6" for reflux? Not sure if it will make much of a difference? Thanks.


Sending good wishes your way!

Hi Snowbird,

 

I only suffer with very mild occasional reflux, so haven't really needed to raise the bedhead. However, I've found a link to Lifestyle Changes That Can Prevent Heartburn which does suggest elevating your head and also I've found a thread about reflux problems at night where a few members have raised the head of the bed along with some other tips which I hope you'll find helpful.

 

Kind regards,

Hello Snowbird

 

My reflux isn't bad enough to need this measure but I know of members who found this measure helpful. They put pillows at the bottom of the bed to prevent sliding down!

 

I hope it helps and take care.
