At the 70th annual Scientific Meeting of the American College of Gastroenterology, William C. Orr, PhD and fellow colleagues presented findings of a study that may affect individuals who have unexplained sleeping difficulties. The study shows that gastroesophageal reflux (GER) may silently plague sleep – an individual’s reflux may not be severe enough to trigger heartburn symptoms, yet it may cause frequent awakenings during sleep. The study of 81 patients with sleep complaints at least three nights a week indicated that 26% of participants had
