9. Are there patterns to reflux?

Early reflux is usually only upright and after meals.  As reflux progresses, it becomes more frequent and daily in symptoms during the day.

As the barrier to acid weakens, symptoms occur with the patient reclining and sleeping.

Patients with so called nocturnal or bipositional reflux will have a higher prevalence of GERD complications and failure of long-term medical control.
