Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your queries.
Increasing symptoms when one lies down and a feeling of a closing throat may be due to acid coming up into your throat when you lie down.
I would recommend that you should take something like omeprazole 20-40 mg before going to sleep.
