I notice quite a few seem to have both Gluten and Dairy Intolerence. Is that common ? Would my only symptom of a dairy Intolerence be a sharp headache after eating dairy ?

Georgie, gluten and dairy intolerances are very commonly paired together. I would try cutting it out for a while and see if you notice a difference.

Per your symptoms, I'm not really sure. I haven't been dairy free long enough or attempted to reintroduce it yet, so I don't even really know what it will do to me.

I do remember that not long after going gluten-free, and being in serious denial, I went to have some cheese sticks. They were awesome.
But anyways, within like thirty minutes of eating them I got a killer migraine. I'm not sure what that was related to, but it was totally worth it to eat those cheese sticks (they're handmade at the bar around the corner. :P )

I suggest that you cut it out for a month or two and then reintroduce it and see what happens

Gluten-free since July 8, 2006
Casein-free since October 16, 2006
Went six weeks, and fell back into a deliciously painful world of cheese.
Casein-free (again and for serious this time) December 11, 2006

Dx Hypothyroid in 1993
Dx Gluten & Casein Sensitive through Enterolab 10/06
Dx Adrenal *Exhaustion* 2/07

Originally from WI, I am still in denial over my newfound casein intolerance. I fear I will not be allowed back into the state if I can no longer eat cheese and drink milk. This could pose some trouble over holidays when I wish to visit my family. It also poses a problem involving the severe rage I feel when I have to throw away somebody's unfinished cheese sticks. That is so wrong.

They do appear to go hand in hand with a non-trivial number of celiacs. Headaches are fairly common signs of intolerances, and a headache is one of the symptoms I get from dairy.

Headache was one of the first signs my hubby got if he had too much milk (along with stomach gripes)

He cut it out for around 3 months and now he can tolerate it ok (but he has a limit !) :)
