If you do eat dairy, what are your problematic symptoms?

I do eat dairy - are you asking what are my problematic symptoms from eating dairy?

Or in general?

I don't know of any symptoms dairy is causing.

hi Girlie, thanks for the response.

I've been eating more dairy and have increased nasal congestion and post nasal drip. I guess it's back to the elimation diet drawing board.

I react to cow dairy from US. Symptoms are congestion, bloating, and reflux.

I don't seem to have any problems with dairy products, but it's very rare that I consume them anymore.

I've read so much health-related information, over the past 15 years, that I'm now 100% certain that I have absolutely no idea who/what is right!

That stated, I'm pretty sure that eating more vegetables is probably a good idea. Conversely, I suspect that dairy is likely not a good idea. But, those are just opinions.

I hope you're able to find and correct whatever is causing you grief!

Dairy caused me congestion and when I was treating lyme I rarely did it.

I got sick on ice cream the first month I had lyme. For some reason that and pizza made me sick. I now wonder if it wasn't the cheese on the pizza.

I think the nasal congestion could be from the dairy. Eliminating it will show if it is.


I have a throat 'thing'. I have phlegm. But, I did do a dairy, gluten, sugar free diet for a few months a few years ago ( I think it was prior to diagnosis) but it didn't help.

My throat 'thing' is better than it was - since treatment.

I eat small amounts of conventional dairy, mainly high quality goat cheese and I drink kefir and ryazhenka. Both seem to aid my digestion and anxiety.

What I noticed- Any type/form of mammal milk products caused bloating, gas, digestive noises, throat mucus and extreme sleepiness.

Since eliminating ALL of it, my skin is also more clear. My life is much better without it.

In its place: Almond milk and sometimes almond yogurt, pea/veggie protein powder for workouts, pea/veggie Good Karma brand kefir, So Delicious brand pea/veggie based fake cheese. (Daiya fake cheese is terrible)
Had initial lyme symptoms late 80's, then again w/with bullseye early 90's. Ended ABX for Lyme in 2015. Rebuilding / repairing / fine tuning since then; member "10 Percenters Lyme Club". What an adventure this has been. Did I mention Hashimoto sucks?

I was having a a lot of allergy related congestion problems, so I was put on DHist and given a list of high histamine foods to avoid. Milk, buttermilk, sour cream and matured/aged/hard cheeses are on the list. Fermented foods like yogurt and kefir are also on the list.

Not all dairy is high histamine, though. Cream cheese, fresh milk (get your own cow or goat) and butter are in the low histamine category. It has helped my post nasal drip to avoid the high histamine foods as much as possible.

Dairy is fine for me so it's a bit of a staple. If it made me feel sick or tired, though, I'd eliminate. Don't worry what other people are doing - how does it make you feel?

If I eat dairy, in 3 hours I grow horns, claws, and fly around on a broom for the next 24 hours. No noticeable GI or allergy symptoms but the rage is crazy. Corn too. I get dairy rage and corn rage.
Lyme, Babesia, Bartonella. Symptoms began 5/2016, didn't start treatment until 9/2016. Slow but steady recovery.
