If this is an isolated incidence, it could be due to the meal you had the night before. Reflux does occur, especially after a large meal or a meal containing a lot of spices and lie down soon after the meal. You can use Gaviscon Advanced before meals to prevent reflux. If the reflux persists after meals, consult your doctor for a referral to have a gastroscopy done.
