Celiac Or Milk Allergy Having Hard Time Telling
0

6 posts in this topic

After a heavy spell of symptoms right after Xmas from eating angel food cake(real whipped cream,donuts,cinammon roles) my body shut down.It took a few days though of symptom after symptom.It started with a neck tension,upper back,shoulder tension.Then heart was irregular,shortness of breath,slight wheezing snd little cough,and cold hand/feet plus tired.Well as you all know I went to docs yesterday feeling pretty good but described all my symptoms that have been affecting me all year 2012.Digestion problems (constipated ,or opposite,smelly BM like sour milk,sinus issues,allergy issues,muscle pains etc.He mentionned celiac.Long story short Ive been off gluten two weeks,been feeling pretty good so I decided yesterday ,hey ill have a coffee(I quit that to last week).I always take 1 cream,1sugar with coffee.I ended up waking up again slightly nervous (had coffee at 1pmorevious day).Today I feel weird and had that sour milk breath and I'm constipated again plus real gassy.But only today? And I are fruit plus pounded water for breakfast.I felt better eating saloman and broccoli for lunch.My question is can a milk allergy kick in only the next day and can it cause the above symptoms I mentionned? Because I know I didn't eat gluten yesterday or the day before? Makes sense to anyone here? I'm confused? I didn't super flare up like at Xmas but had mini symptoms?

Hi LiquidC,

It is possible you are having a reaction to dairy as well as having celiac. Many celiacs have lactose intolerance at first because the damage to the villi in the gut impairs the ability to produce lactase enzyme. The lactase enzyme made by the villi is what digests the dairy sugar (lactose). Without lactase the bacteria thrive and cause GI symptoms.

You could also have a casein intolerance, or a milk allergy.

Or you could just be having an off day.

If you want to test your reaction to dairy, you can eliminate all dairy for a week or two. If you are feeling better then, go ahead and try some dairy and see what happens.

You can also ask your doctor to do a lactose intolerance test and or a dairy allergy test.

We end up using our own bodies to test foods a lot. They don't pay us any money to run food tests on our bodies but the don't charge us anything either. So you can do these kinds of test on any foods. You could do a search on elimination diet on this site and find more ideas about them.

If it was not immediate, it would be considered an intolerance. As stated, it very well could be a dairy issue because of Celiac damage or a dairy intolerance all of it's own.

That certainly sounds like a casein issue. I get all of that, minus the sour milk taste, when I have dairy. I just don't have dairy anymore. There are all kinds of milk alternatives on the market now, so I really don't miss it. Cheese on the other hand....

As for my morning coffee I use a coconut creamer. It's specially designed for coffee. It doesn't taste like coconut. There are soy versions also. I can't do soy, so that's why I use the coconut one.

    • As a GI specialty nurse who also has celiac I can tell you that it can not be diagnosed by CT and rarely unless you have severe disease can it be diagnosed by colonoscopy.  Those that have had it diagnosed by colonoscopy have such because their MDs were above to get into the small bowel from the bottom and take biopsys.  Celiac damage is not seen in the large intestine.  Also many people do not have diarrhea, many have constipation or a 50/50 mix between the two.  Celiac has 300 connected symptoms and sometimes no symptoms at all.  It's called the " great pretender" because of this.
    • Okay, thanks! I am 24 but my husband and I don't plan on having kids. However, the more I thought about it, the more I think I should get one for my brother's sake. Especially after my doctor's office called this evening to say my bloodwork tested positive for Celiac. Guess I will be on this forum longer than I thought!
    • You just got diagnosed Celiac and are wondering how serious this really is. What if there is just a little gluten in your food? What if you use the same toaster for your gluten-free bread as your wife's/husband's regular bread? What if those french fries are gluten-free but they fry them in the same fryer as those nice gluten coated onion rings? View the full article
    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better.
