Laid Down Right after taking antibiotics and now I have trouble eating

Recommended Posts

I went to sleep around 5-10 minutes after taking Doxycycline once thinking it wouldn't be a problem but then as soon as a woke up I noticed a slight burning sensation in the esophagus. Since then and now 4 days after it hurts whenever I eat something, similar to heartburn. I'm wondering, could doing that have led to acid reflux disease or even GERDS, ulcers, or just temporary esophagus irritation? For one it never hurts after meals like regular heartburn, it only hurts right after I eat something. Also, it doesn't hurt whenever I lay down or stand upside down, only when I eat something, unlike regular GERDS or heartburn. Does anyone here have any help they can give me or whether it will go away anytime soon? Thank you :)

I took minocycline and had a really bad feeling in my esophagus when I took it at night. I would try to take it earlier in the day with a lot of water.
