Dairy Now Too?!

So, Tuesday night, I took some Excedrine on an empty stomach. Bad idea because I can be sensitive to caffiene... I had horrible stomach cramps and nausea for the rest of the day and all day Wednesday. I made a pizza for dinner Wednesday night and felt like I had been glutened a few hours later. I blamed it on the pepperoni... Thursday night, I made another pizza (because I could just leave everything at work and not forget it in my car) and skipped the pepperoni. I felt even worse Thursday night and Friday morning. I even left school early because of the fatigue, muscle cramps, and severe stomach cramps... I didn't connect all of this to dairy until this AM when I had a glass of milk and some almonds for a snack... I have spent all day with really bad stomach cramps and nausea and had no one to cover for me at work... So, I'm thinking it must have been the dairy... But can dairy problems cause the fatigue and stuff too? Or could all of this just be from the excedrine still and will go away after a couple of weeks? :unsure: I don't want to go dairy free too... I like milk... :(

Mandy,

If you really suspect the excedrin then try dairy again next week and see if you feel the same.

It would probably be best to cut out all dairy for 2-6 months and then reintroduce it and see how you feel. It may be that you would be able to have small amounts but not every day.

I'm sorry you're feeling lousy. :(

I'm a milk lover, but I had to lay off it for a couple of months in the beginning. So give it a try and see if you feel better. :)

I had to eliminate dairy, have been for about 3 1/2 years. Dont matter how careful I eliminate dairy, I'm still quote sensative to it, and the last time I used normal milk, even just a bit, I still nearly threw up

Hopefully if you eliminate it tho, it'll work for ya!

Many people with celiac disease are temporarily lactose intolerant until their villi heal. The enzymes that break down lactose are located at the tips of the villi and when some of them are blunted from gluten, lactose sometimes gets through, causing problems. Maybe try taking lacaid with dairy?

While I had to give up dairy, I found nightshades give me severe muscle and nerve problems. If I where to eat a pizza crust made with any potato flour/starch, that would do me in for weeks. Not to mention the tomatoes are also a nightshade, so I don't see a pizza in my future for quite some time :angry: The proteins in dairy (mostly the casein I think) seems to add to it, but on it's own it takes more to effect me, and the symptoms aren't exactly the same.

So in your case it could be the dairy, or some other ingredient in the pizza. Maybe the flour was contaminated too. By any chance was it Bob's Red Mill? It seems many (but not all) on this board find cross-contamination issues with that. Was the cheese the same as usual?

Like you say though, the Excedrin may still be a lingering factor. I think the suggestion of waiting and testing again is a good one. You could also make some of the crust and eat it plain, and see how that goes, but the CC issue might still remain unknown. If the medication put the dairy or whatever over your limit, then I'd say you are basically skating on thin ice by eating it anyway. So it might be a good idea to limit (or eliminate) consumption of it for a few months, whatever the "it" turns out to be.

Maybe goat's milk, cheese or yogurt could be tolerated??
