Goat cheese issues?

Hello everyone. I hope I posted this in the right place. Anyways, I have recently started trying goat products for the first time mainly due to hearing how much better it is for you than cows milk. I do have issues with regular dairy in consistent amounts which I know is common and I have been meaning to try cutting it out completely but it's in so many good things so I essentially just suffer through the same way I dealt with my undiagnosed celiac for 10 years and then hate myself lol. So I tried goats milk and it was disgusting and I didn't have more than the one sip, then last night my boyfriend bought a bunch of fancy goat cheeses and I ate about half of the small pack of one that I didn't like very much since it had the same taste as the milk (I felt bad cuz he's a foodie and was so excited for me to try goat cheese with him) and then the whole small pack of the one that was seasoned enough to not taste horrible. Within a few hours I got really sick with nausea but it passed, then all night I suffered from horrible constipation, nausea, and pain. Which I know constipation is common with cheese but it was the same type and pain as when my intestines are reacting to something else, I don't know about anyone else but I can tell the difference between flare/glutened and normal bowel issues. The pain wasn't bad enough to be an actual flare and I know it wasn't caused by actual gluten but it was definitely one of those sensitivity things that upsets and confuses my intestines still, my only question is why? Has anybody else with celiac experienced issues with goat cheese? If anything all I've seen is how people substitute goat dairy for real dairy and it helps them. I've looked around the internet and can't find a single sign of someone having an adverse reaction to goat cheese, so I had hoped that since it affected me in the way sensitivity issues do maybe a fellow celiac would know something. Thank you!

I react to goat the same as dairy from cow, gas, bloating, constipation, some times nausea and vomiting. There are many dairy free options. I will post links to them and some recipes for dairy free cheese sauce and my dairy free cheesy bread this evening.

Dairy is dairy.  Goats milk has lactose, too.  so if lactose intolerance is your issue, it won't make much difference
