Do most of you think there is a specific reason that a person gets GERD? I wonder because I often see posts that say "You need to find out why you are having GERD". I know certain things, like a hiatial hernia, certain medications, lifestyle, etc can cause GERD, as well as a weakened LES, but assuming that you don't have a hernia, cut out any medications that can cause GERD, make lifestyle changes and are not at an age where your LES is likely to be weakened due to age, do you think it is likely for someone to have GERD?
Do some people develop it "just cause"? Or is there usually something that can be pinpointed?
