My husband was diagnosed with Hiatal Hernia 25 years ago. At that time he went on a Peptic Ulcer diet. No fried foods etc. Stop eating 2 hours before going to bed. We bought a 12 inch high wedge on which he sleeps. Because his upper body is elevated there is no Reflux. But before you buy a wedge try elevating the bed by putting bricks under the top of the bed. Good Luck.
