Name your form submit button somehow, for example
<input type="Submit" name="my_submit_button" value="Submit">

then when the page is refresh check if there is a variable named
$my_submit_button. If there is not than the page is refreshed using the
refresh button or the form was submitted with th "Enter" key.
You will process the form only when there is variable $my_submit_button
which means that someone has pressed the submit button.

Subject: [PHP-DB] Allowing refresh without form processing?
