rgbarron01 Posted December 11, 2013 Share Posted December 11, 2013 I am a bit surprised by the results(?) of my dairy reintro yesterday. Never in a million years would I have thought that dairy would affect me. I made a pointed effort to be positive and to not over think things--just eat the stuff and move on. I have no known emotional attachment to dairy (except perhaps butter), no cravings, but probably consumed some every day, if not purposely then as an ingredient in the heavily processed food I was eating. Thought the reintro would be a non-eventful. At breakfast I had one slice of Muenster cheese, which added a delightful smoky taste to my eggs. I felt a bit nauseated about a half hour later--okay, I can understand that as my stomach was probably a little surprised. Not long after that I developed a stabbing headache. Sigh. At lunch I had 1/2 cup of full-fat plain Greek yogurt (chosen because of no ingredients other than milk and cultures...still avoiding sugar). That was interesting--like eating sour cream. I dumped it in my soup. About an hour later my stomach was sore--not crampy, no gas, no bloat, no quick dashes to the bathroom...it just felt like the aftermath of being punched (not that I've ever been punched in the stomach...). I had about 1T of butter--it just made my food taste funny. I have always loved butter, and plenty of it. This was disappointing. I woke up this morning feeling constipated and, believe it or not, weepy. What the ?? I am sitting here crying? Over what? It is almost laughable. Nothing comes to mind...I am not grieving for dairy, nor do I feel THAT bad. It feels hormonal..similar to PMS symptoms I had many years ago. I am in menopause but have not experienced this before. I am also congested this morning. No real point to all of this, other than to share. I had hoped writing it out would make me feel better but i still feel sad Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
