i occasionally have issues where I wake up in the

i occasionally have issues where I wake up in the middle of the night because I have regurgitated a small amount of bile up into my mouth. This usually is followed by a long period of not being able to rinse the taste back down, some mildness soreness or burning in my throat, etc. Is this acid reflux? Is there something that I could take to prevent this from occurring (especially if I were to eat acidic foods)?

I occasionally have a few spots of blood on my pillow when I wake up, but can t find a source. No itching, so bedbugs don t seem likely. The only other thing that happened this AM, besides the blood dots, is that I woke up with a migraine on the left side of my head, and I sleep on my left side, & blood spots are where my head would have bee in that position. I don t know if there any connection. These spots have only appeared every few months. What could cause this?

I had gall bladder surgery 6 months ago and then a follow up ERCP to remove so e residual sludge in bile duct a month ago. I am well and no apparent physical problems. However, since my surgery I wake up in the middle of the night and cannot sleep for an hour or so. There is no acid reflux or other digestion issue I can identify. I am physically fit, fall asleep Ok and don t use caffeine at all. I am 64 years old. Is there any medical literature suggesting insomnia associated with gall bladder removal other than some of the anecdotal examples on the Internet? Thanks
