Soy Or Milk?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So I have been doing farely well as far as my headaches and dizzyness goes. I have been avoiding Soy and Milk for a while now. Well yesterday I ate some Organic Prarie Jerky which isnt labelled to have soy but I figured it does. I also at some boyscout popcorn which is labelled to contain soy.

I went through the rest of the day without much reaction although I felt a headache come on while trying to sleep last night. Kinda like a drunkness feeling. Not sure if its the soy.

This morning I also realized that I was out of Rice Milk so I drank regular milk with my breakfast. Well about an hour or two afterwards I got a really dizzy type feeling that freaked me out a little.

I dont really know if either is causing it but I figured since I havent felt this way since I got really sick a few months back and before starting my Gluten free diet. I eliminated soy in all the obvious places because I felt that if I was Celiac then there was a good chance of soy getting me as well. I also eliminated the Milk with the thoughts that it would help my gut heal a little faster. But I didnt give up Cheese or anything like that, just Milk. I have been drinking Rice milk until this morning.

So do you guys and gals think it was the soy that did me in today or was it the milk. I have a feeling the Soy gave me the headache last night but could my dizzy spell and brain fog from today have come from yesterdays soy as well, or could it have been the milk?

I dont know if it was the soy or the milk. Seems weird to me that either one would casue dizziness. Headache, I would bet soy over milk.

How long have you been off gluten?

I have been off gluten for almost 4 months now. I have had sudden attacks of vertigo, but only lasts a second or two then goes away. From what I have been reading and listening to comments on this site, vertigo has struck other people in the first year of going gluten-free. So the dizziness could be a reaction to that and not what you ate.

Just recentely I have taken myself off of dairy completely while my stomach heals. I think I have narrowed it down to dairy that has been causing my severe gas pains, irregular bm, and lack of sleep. I have been off of dairy for 4 days now and am actually starting to see positive results. I have never been lactose intolerant, and dont know if I really am now, or if it is just hard to digest while my stomach heals. Maybe someone else can comment furter on that matter for us.

I would try to stay off of dairy 100% and see what that does for you, as sometimes you can get lactose issues when you have celiacs. Soy as well, but soy doesnt seem to be an issue for me so far. Starches might be another reason for some of my gas pains, as sometimes starches can effect celiacs too.

That is my little input on my experiences thus far. Hope it helps.

I started my diet back in July. I struggled with the dizzyness for a few months until I started up on some B12 supplements among other vitamins I thought I would be deficient in. But at the same time I started eliminating other things that I thought were hindering my progress. Soy and Milk for starters. I still had cheese without much reaction so I dont think its dairy. I figured it had to be something I ate because I have been feeling great as far as my head issues went. I have a suspicion that its the soy.....anyone ever had that type of reaction to it?
