Can Dairy Cause Joint Pain? I Have Been Lactose-Intolerant For 13 Years

4 posts in this topic

Hi everyone!

I've noticed a strange symptom: the last few times I have had dairy, I get joint pain. Normally I avoid dairy as I am lactose-intolerant, but have the occasional slip-up. I noticed when I had dessert with some ice-cream the other day, my knees were very sore. And then last night, I had to have a pill to induce bowel movements for my colonoscopy and it was 33mg of lactose. I had knee pain as well, then. I've never had these symptoms before. Usually it is gas, diarrhea, etc. I'm pretty sure joint pain is tied to inflammation though... after contracting measles, I started having blood in my stool - and everytime I would have blood, I would get a fever and joint pain. This has been on/off for the last 3 years but it is getting better. My gut has been incredibly strange over the last year, though. I find things are just "sitting" in there, causing constipation even when it's something like dairy - which is supposed to pass right through my system! My colonoscopy is this morning to figure out at least part of the puzzle, so here is crossing my fingers!

In the United States, cows and chickens are fed grains rather than grass, resulting in the production of fats which are rich in omega-6 fatty acids, which in excess can cause significant inflammation.  Whereas 100% grass fed chickens lay eggs with a balanced omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acid ratio of about 1:1, grain fed chickens lay eggs with an omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acid ratio of about 20-30:1.  Similar results are found with grain-fed cows (beef), cow milk, chickens, and grain-fed ("farm-raised") fish such as tilapia.  An excellent book with literature references for these findings was written by a physician with brain cancer who used his knowledge of nutrition to keep his cancer at bay for many years:  "Anti-Cancer:  A New Way of LIfe" by David Servan-Schreiber, MD, PhD.  Just Google the title and you'll find the book with lots of people recommending it.  I also highly recommend it.  You will more than likely get a lot of information about the foods and food derivatives you are consuming which may be adding to the problems that you are now having.

I get pain when I have dairy although I can have heavy whipped cream with my coffee (no additives just cream, I use Organic Meadows). But if I have milk with my coffee I get extreme upper neck pain and a foul mood. My son gets neck pain from dairy too. My knee only swells from fresh tomatoes. This food journey is just so bizarre.

Hi orange,

I was lactose intolerant too for many years, but after a year on the Gluten free diet I have now been able to introduce dairy again

I find I am ok with Greek yoghurt,

but if I have milk and other dairy products I also get lots of joint pains like you do

including restless legs, and for some strange reason a very painful tail bone along with sciatica pain and very stiff fingers too

I also get very cold feet and then I get very hot and the sweats spreading over me too ,

I also get insomnia if I have too much dairy ,

I had the same problem as you with dairy going straight through,

it sounds like your lactose intolerance may have changed too ,

I definitely think there could be a link with joint stiffness and eating dairy products

It seems like eating certain foods can cause all sorts of strange things especially when we are fighting digestive illness

Good luck Orange with your tests ,

Ps ... Here is an interesting link about a GP who cured her aches and pains by giving up certain fruits and veg

    • Hi Stephanie, I'm also from the UK, I've found this site more helpful than anything we have!  As already mentioned above, in my experience it could depend on what and where you were drinking. Gluten free food and drink isn't always (not usually) 100% gluten free as you may know, maybe you have become more sensitive to even a trace of gluten that is probably in gluten free food/drink. Is it possible you have a problem with corn, particularly high fructose corn syrup that is in a lot of alcoholic drinks? This was a big problem for me and the only alcoholic drinks I can tolerate are William Chase vodka and gin. I contacted the company last year and all their drinks are 100% gluten and corn free, made the old fashioned way with no additives, so maybe try their products if you like the occasional drink and see how you get on. If you drink out, not many pubs sell their products but I know Wetherspoons do and smaller wine bars may too. l was never a spirit drinker but I must say their products are absolutely lovely! Very easy on a compromised gut too considering it's alcohol. I second the suggestion on seeing a natural health practitioner. I've recently started seeing a medical herbalist, as I've got nowhere with my now many food intolerances since going gluten free last year and I've noticed a difference in my health already. 
    • Sorry for the very late reply and thanks for the replies, I didn't get a notification of any. In case anyone else comes across this and has been wondering the same as I was, I did try a vegetable broth and I did react to it in the same way as if I'd eaten the vegetables.  As for the candida, I've been using coconut oil and am seeing a medical herbalist for this and leaky gut. It's only been a few weeks but I've noticed an improvement all round.
    • What did you drink and where did you drink it?   NOTE if you drink something at a bar using their glasses your asking for trouble BEER IS EVERYWHERE in most bars and a CC hell.   If it was at home and a non grain based liqour then I would be really concerned that it might just be alcohol. I personally can not really drink much of anything any more. I love rum, and I cook with it sometimes in sautes. I also have rum extract/butter rum extract/and rum emulsion I use in shakes, homemade keto pudding/ mixed into dishes. and even add some to drink to give it a rum flavor lol.
    • I can only think of two things, 1 something you put on your potato was contaminated like the butter container could have crumbs in it or something like that as mentioned before, and you could be having a reaction to dairy or what ever was put in it.......IF it was just plain potato and you reacted with bloating and cramping you might have a carb issues, tad rare and most associated with additional auto immune diseases but could be in which case a diet of fats and protein would be your answer much like it is for me now days. What all have you eaten in the privous 8 hours including beverages, condiments, spices and foods?
    • They are gluten-free.  Did you use butter that might have gluten crumbs on it?  For me , it takes more than 2 hours to feel the effect of gluten- maybe something you ate before?  Maybe  stomach virus?
