Hi and welcome.
Your symptoms are most likely due to acid reflux but another condition called sleep apnea ( which is characterised by loud snoring and sudden breaks in sleep with shortness of breath ) can not be ruled out. I would suggest you to treat your reflux first that would improve your symptoms. Omeprazole 20 mg a day would help along with life style changes. Take dinner at least 2 hours before going to sleep, walk for 30 minutes after dinner, avoid caffeine and alcohol, avoid smoked spicy fatty foods. Take lots of water. If symptoms do not improve you need to visit your GP for thorough examination to rule out sleep apnea.
