Seems it affects far more people than I'd previously realised - will take note of what has been outlined (above) anyway, and use any recommendations more wisely in future should I get a repeat performance of it. Cheers.I When I was a child, stomach ulcers were a result of 'stress' and stomach acid increase. Milk, especially buttermilk, the recommended treatment.
Turns out ulcers have nothing to do with stomach acids.
So, while buttermilk might relieve the pain, it wasn't actually doing any good.
I do remember making a curry a few days ago, and for some reason it seemed to be extra-extra hot (peppery), which might be the reason why it might well have suddenly backfired on me! I also ate it later than I normally would do!
