I'm wondering, if... like how people get rebound headaches after they detox from excessive doses of painkillers for the initial headache...
is it possible that reflux not caused by the known bacteria or other causes, is due to excessively drinking milk/ taking tablets to relieve the symptoms? The mechanism is plausible... the body creating too much acid to counterract the alkali, causing a vicious cycle.
fair enough. i never really tried the medication, i was just drinking pints of milk at a time when i had a bad attack. then after i stopped doing that and just endured the pain for a couple days it got a lot better.
might be something for people suffering it for months with no known cause to think about
