Brief Answer: Hello Detailed Answer: Since this happens after lunch and on sleeping I would suspect gastroesophgeal reflux with possible aspiration into lungs. So ideal investigation would be barium swallow and seeing gastroenterology. Reflux are common after meal and in lying down position. So see gastroenterologist and get investigation done. Hope this helps. Please ask if there are doubts. Regards
