I have read that coffee (caffeine?) can be a big problem ( or one cause) for acid reflux.

I used to drink up to five mugs of coffee a day. At the age of 70 I started to have an irregular heart beat. Meaing my heart would miss a beart or two and then douible up the next beats. This caused an uncomfortable feeling in my chest and neck. I went to my doctor and I ended up doing a stress test with a cardiogram, etc. The conclusion was to cut way back on the caffiene Result, the irregular heart beats stopped. Now I drink decaffineated coffee.
