And no, I'm not pregnant.

I've checked, twice, a week apart! Not to mention, I've been on the pill for 10 years straight, I'm not sure my uterus knows what its job is any more.

Generally, an evening onset.  Feels almost to the level of vomiting.  Started about a week and a half ago, when I overdid it on some dairy products.  (Have known, but generally ignorable lactose intolerance)

Cut right back on the dairy, only having in my 2-3 cups of tea per day.  Had a couple of splurges (cheese on pasta, small blob of cream on pie), which definitely made it worse, though it's there without it.

Bowels have been a bit unhappy -gassy, stubborn.

Any ideas?  GP worthy or just cut the dairy ALL the way out for a fortnight and hope it all settles itself down?

Just having a bit of a guess here, maybe it's not so much dairy as the problem but the fat content of the dairy items you consume.

So my guess is, drumroll please .... gallbladder / bile duct?


Hope it's resolved soon, OP.

I'd be guessing either a tummy bug or your lactose intolerance has gotten worse. (if that is possible?)

I certainly know I overdid it...

In 2 days, a giant vanilla thickshake, cheesy pizza, iced coffee and probably an icecream for dessert in there.

I felt so awful sad.gif

that's not overdoing it, OP - that's a lactose pig-out! LOL

I'd probably cut out all dairy till your gut settles and heals a little if you're sure this is what's caused it.

However it may be something else?  Doctor will likely prescribe something to ease/stop the nausea (which may or may not work).  Could it also be a bit of mild food poisoning (unrelated to your lactose intolerance)?

*blush*

Maybe just a little bit... ninja.gif

I'm having a black cup of tea this morning, going all out with no dairy.

Lunch is goign to be interesting, we're going to Montezumas (mexican).  Everything has cheese or sour cream, or weird combinations involving sultanas.

I might just order a side of rice and eat that LOL

I know i've got Maxalon somewhere, but I didn't think to use it.  At least if I cut out the dairy and the nausea stops I'll have it pinned down.

Maybe order the Montezumas Delight? It's mostly vegetables and the meat or beans layer underneath. Usually comes with just a sprinkle of grated cheese and maybe a dollop of sour cream on top, but you could ask not to include them (maybe ask for guacamole instead).

Why don't you just go to a doctor? Might be more accurate then random strangers on an Internet forum.

If you really need milk for your tea, you can lactose free cows milk. Liddells is the brand I think.

Probably best to pop into the dr though.

I used to wake up vomiting every morning. I went to one Dr who spoke to be for 3 minutes then referred me to a psychologist for bulimia. Went to another Dr who prescribed Maxalon, which I hate taking but who also suggested I look to see if it was triggered by certain foods.

Tried cutting out milk as it's the most obvious, instant cure. Woohoo. I can tolerate A2 milk and cheese no problems. Cream gives me a really upset stomach, but sometimes it's totally worth it! biggrin.gif

I'd suggest seeing your Dr but it seems like you already know dairy is the cause original.gif

#13 JustBeige

Posted 20 January 2013 - 10:45 AM

I agree with Fancie.  I think your lactose intolerant system is having a "OMG Dude!"  moment. original.gif


I would cut out the dairy and switch to lactose free milk.  

If it keeps up of course toddle off to the doctors.

I was hoping for some fellow lactose-intolerance suffers to confirm whether or not they get nausea after a big binge.


I haven't had such an over-exposure in decades.  The worst I usually get is a bit phlegmy after a Baskin & Robbins treat.  Obviously, I've just pushed it too far.

I did have a dollop of extra thick cream on my apple pie last night, half an hour later I felt like I was going to puke.  Seems to be a fair correlation there.

It's going to make school lunches a PITA, though.  Ham & cheese sandwhich or cheese toastie are my staples *sigh*

I am lactose intolerant and when I over do it I can get really sick and need to not have any lactose for about a week and then I am usually back to normal.

I drink lactose free milk and use lactose free cream in cooking.

Not much help but have you tryed to take lacteze? I use it for both myself and son and we have no problem with dairy.
I got my tabs from the chemist off the shelf.

I used to get bad nausea from normal milk, especially skim milk for some reason. I do occasionally have to have something lactose loaded like today at a birthday party, I couldn't resist the cake. I don't feel nauseous that much anymore but I get bloated, painfully bloated, my breath stinks and also lots of gases come out the other end as well.
But at all times most of the symptoms go away within 5-6 hours .
It could be lactose that's making you feel like that but it won't hurt you to talk to the Dr.
Hope you'll feel better soon.

No lactose today, except whatever was in the pastry of my apple pie and the bit of chocolate I ate, and virtually no nausea.  Just a tinge.

I'm lactose intolerant, I can feel quite ill for a few days if I overindulge. Mine has definitely gotten worse since I turned 30.

Sorry OP, hope you didn't think I was rude to you.

I should have mentioned in the "pig-out" post that I would have been right there beside you, scoffing all that yumminess down too!

Nt sure if this helps, but DD and I have  both been enjoying the Vaalia lactose free vanilla yoghurt for breakfast recently, and both of us have been getting terrible upset stomachs. Turns out they have add inulin to it, which is notorious for causing bloating, nausea, upset stomach etc.
Any chance you are having this brand of lactose free yoghurt?
