Yea it was short lived! It came back. I dicided to stay away from Cheese. I havn't eaten anything eles in the way of cheeses milk dairy stuff. Mostly in my knees and elbows . pffttt!
If the joint pain is related to cheese, you may need to avoid all dairy. Cheese is mostly dairy protein. But milk and other dairy products often have the protein in them. So just avoiding cheese wouldn't be enough to stop a reaction. You might not notice a reaction with milk, but it could still be happening.
I had strong reactions to dairy at first when I was gluten-free. They have changed over the years and are not so strong now. You may find that after you have been gluten-free for 6 months to a year, that you are able to tolerate dairy better. Or it might be a case where you need to avoid it forever.
There are lots of alternative dairy options these days to choose from though. So it's not a big problem to go dairy free.
Kind of interesting learning new things about your body at times isn't it?
