Maybe gluten: Cereal has gluten and you may be gluten sensitive. So, it might not be the milk. Lactose intolerance is dose related. So if you use a lot of milk on your cereal it could be that.

Many causes do this: You need to see your physician for an evaluation. Some m. edicines do this, especially aspirin or drugs like Advil (ibuprofen). Some people have ulcers or GERD, where fluid with acid from the stomach refluxes into the esophagus. Sometimes, no cause is found, but treatment reduces the burning. In any case, it is worthwhile to find out how to solve the problem, so make an appointment.
