Yes Altitude not attitude.

Has anyone else noted that at very high altitudes their reflux condition changes? Mine seems to resolve and I can even drink coffee (only the best) when at over 8,000 ft. Long way to go for a coffee though.

So anyone feel confident enough to theorize or hazard a biological 'explanation' for this observation?

I wondered if altered autoimmune function was related to increased cardiac activity that is just normal to visitors to these lower oxygen environments? Environment is king when the body is on a cusp.
GERD is such a slippery beast
