Dairy Now Too?!

So, Tuesday night, I took some Excedrine on an empty stomach. Bad idea because I can be sensitive to caffiene... I had horrible stomach cramps and nausea for the rest of the day and all day Wednesday. I made a pizza for dinner Wednesday night and felt like I had been glutened a few hours later. I blamed it on the pepperoni... Thursday night, I made another pizza (because I could just leave everything at work and not forget it in my car) and skipped the pepperoni. I felt even worse Thursday night and Friday morning. I even left school early because of the fatigue, muscle cramps, and severe stomach cramps... I didn't connect all of this to dairy until this AM when I had a glass of milk and some almonds for a snack... I have spent all day with really bad stomach cramps and nausea and had no one to cover for me at work... So, I'm thinking it must have been the dairy... But can dairy problems cause the fatigue and stuff too? Or could all of this just be from the excedrine still and will go away after a couple of weeks? :unsure: I don't want to go dairy free too... I like milk... :(

Mandy,

If you really suspect the excedrin then try dairy again next week and see if you feel the same.

It would probably be best to cut out all dairy for 2-6 months and then reintroduce it and see how you feel. It may be that you would be able to have small amounts but not every day.

I'm sorry you're feeling lousy. :(

I'm a milk lover, but I had to lay off it for a couple of months in the beginning. So give it a try and see if you feel better. :)

I had to eliminate dairy, have been for about 3 1/2 years. Dont matter how careful I eliminate dairy, I'm still quote sensative to it, and the last time I used normal milk, even just a bit, I still nearly threw up

Hopefully if you eliminate it tho, it'll work for ya!

Many people with celiac disease are temporarily lactose intolerant until their villi heal. The enzymes that break down lactose are located at the tips of the villi and when some of them are blunted from gluten, lactose sometimes gets through, causing problems. Maybe try taking lacaid with dairy?

While I had to give up dairy, I found nightshades give me severe muscle and nerve problems. If I where to eat a pizza crust made with any potato flour/starch, that would do me in for weeks. Not to mention the tomatoes are also a nightshade, so I don't see a pizza in my future for quite some time :angry: The proteins in dairy (mostly the casein I think) seems to add to it, but on it's own it takes more to effect me, and the symptoms aren't exactly the same.

So in your case it could be the dairy, or some other ingredient in the pizza. Maybe the flour was contaminated too. By any chance was it Bob's Red Mill? It seems many (but not all) on this board find cross-contamination issues with that. Was the cheese the same as usual?

Like you say though, the Excedrin may still be a lingering factor. I think the suggestion of waiting and testing again is a good one. You could also make some of the crust and eat it plain, and see how that goes, but the CC issue might still remain unknown. If the medication put the dairy or whatever over your limit, then I'd say you are basically skating on thin ice by eating it anyway. So it might be a good idea to limit (or eliminate) consumption of it for a few months, whatever the "it" turns out to be.

Maybe goat's milk, cheese or yogurt could be tolerated??

    • That's great, Gertrude! I'm glad your doctors sound more competent than mine. And that you're starting to feel better.  I haven't had any abdominal or joint pain in the last few days, and I feel like I have more energy for sure. I've been feeling a little off/dizzy but that might be from gluten withdrawal.  Good luck with everything! 
    • By the way, I got my biopsy pathology report and the doctor took 2 biopsies, not the recommended 4-6. It says no "significant villous blunting not seen." I don't know if I should laugh or cry---so frustrating.   
    •   Thank you, this does feel helpful and reassuring. Did you end up getting blood tests again after going gluten-free? Do you have to worry about cross contamination as much as with a celiac diagnosis?  How do you explain it to friends and family? Non-Celiac gluten sensitivity sounds so vague and I know it's dumb, but I worry about people not taking me seriously.        
    • Helen, a woman with severe lifelong eczema/dermatitis, wrote to me a few weeks ago, saying "I have taken your advice and been strictly gluten free for five months now. The eczema inflammation is 99% gone and my skin quality has significantly improved. I do still get a bit itchy around my neck area and elbow creases, more so at night when it is warm. I have noticed a significant improvement in my asthma also. I still use antihistamines perhaps once or twice a week for runny nose. Does this mean I will need to be gluten free for life? Which of your books would you say would be the most relevant for someone in my position? Thank you for your assistance, regards, Helen. View the full article
    • Hello and welcome Reading your post it looks like each of your results were within the 'normal' range. There doesn't appear to be mention of a total serum IGA to make sure you have enough of this to begin with to make the test accurate however - but there are others here who are more experienced who may be able to tell you more. There are some other celiac tests: tTG IgA and tTG IgG -DGP IgA and DGP IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test to ensure tests are not false negatives)   They may not be covered by your provider however. Note that you appear to have been avoiding gluten somewhat already, that could impact on the tests accuracy. Your symptoms sound like they could be gluten related (but then practically everything could!) but you may want to discuss with your doctor whether to push for further testing or move to trial gluten free diet. Some people, like myself, test negative but still find symptoms respond to gluten free.   Best of luck!
