Dairy Now Too?!
0

7 posts in this topic

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??

    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
