Not Sure What Is Going On

I was happily tootling along on the paleo diet (no dairy, no grains etc), which I have been on the for the last month and a half, when a few weeks ago I had a bad migraine that left me with vertigo and nausea for a while. Not long after that I also started getting stomach pain (upper half of my abdomen, not lower abdomen). As I could not eat much I put cream back into my diet (for the calories) after taking milk out because it seemed to upset me. Now, for the first few days it was fine, then I missed a day of cream as I ran out but today, after putting it back in, the diarrhoea is running through me. This is the first time I have had diarrhoea since I went grain and dairy free, and as it is pretty bad, I am wondering what is up.

Could it be an attack of gastritis (the stomach pain is not a foreigner to me as I have had it at times in the past and it started before I started drinking cream)?

Could it be the dairy? (causing the diarrhoea not the gut pain as I have had the gut pain for over a week now and just got the diarrhoea today)

Could it be something else?

Whenever I see my dr they diagnose IBS but the pain is in slightly the wrong place (upper gut, not lower gut...nearer my actual stomach and small intestine rather than my large intestine). It could be a viral thing I guess so I am waiting it out but any feedback welcome. Should I take the dairy back out again? I though cream might be ok as it's got very little lactose in.

Dropping dairy again for a bit might be a good idea. You may be reacting to the milk protein, casien, rather than the milk sugar, lactose.

Hope your feeling better soon.

It could be an H.Pylori infection. They have test for that you can get at your doctor. A natural treatment is mastic gum, but it is not an overnight cure or anything. You have to take if for a month or more. Why not take the dairy back out and see if it helps? That is the only way to know.

When I had an ulcer in my upper left stomach I would lay on my left side. The stomach acid kills the H.pylori bacteria or at least inhibits it. That was not an instant cure either but did reduce the pain for a while so I could sleep.
