Your story is very possible and happens to many but I do have to agree that 7 days is a VERY short period. The rebound is usually from Gastrin build up as a result of taking PPI for long periods of time usually longer than 30 days but its not uncommon for other to experience rebound for shorter periods also but i assume its quiet rarer. This is a contentious topic and many doctors are not aware of it or dismiss it.
are you sure you did not have gastritis? its possible you had a short acid rebound and it flared your gastritis up which can cause you reflux acid and cause symptoms you describe. You can have gastritis without much pain in the stomach, the esophagus upwards is very sensitive and burn quick so its can be quite painful.
But its 100% also possible that you may be sensitive and indeed have had acid rebound for that long. I suppose you may never know 100% what was the reason for your acid rebound problem but so glad you have managed to get better.
I also had sever acid rebound when I came of ppi after healing my gastritis and the rebound acid production was so ridiculous that it triggered gastritis again and it happened to me again and again every time I cured my gastritis and not to talk about
the crazy side effects. I decided to stop this medicine that was causing my death slowly and treat gastritis naturally without medication which is VERY HARD but I have no other choice.
Unfortunately my gastritis was very severe to start with because It was caused by a stupid medication that RUINED my stomach and doctors never warned me. Doctors are mostly stupid when it comes to warning people about
risks vs benefit and make decision for us assuming we the patients are stupid.
glad everything is well for you :)
