You should ideally have dinner 4 hours before going to sleep. In addition keep the head end of the bed elevated. That should be helpful.

It's not an uncommon scenario and is not a sign of any serious underlying illness. Some people have reduce tone atbthe lower end of food pipe and that can lead to regurgitation of acid and food.
