Hello everyone, I am new to the boards. I've been having fibro symptoms for 7-8 yeas, finally got diagnosed about 2 years ago. Last October I was put on a combo of Cymbalta and Neurontin, and as of January, I've been feeling much better. Last year was positively miserable, I was bedridden for much of it. This year, I still have pain and flares, but much less often and much milder. So I'm happy about that! However, a new and puzzling symptom has emerged. I don't know if it's related to the fibro or what. For the past few months I have become very sensitive to lactose. In the beginning, it was ice cream and hot (melted) cheese that totally killed my GI tract, and it would get better if I took lactaid before eating those foods. Lately, though, the Lactaid no longer helps and the dairy sensitivity has extended even to the little bit of milk I put in my coffee each morning. I don't get the classic lactose intolerance symptoms with this, I get really nauseous and the milk feels like it's sitting like a boulder in my stomach. A few days ago my husband thought I should switch to Lactaid milk, so he got me some. I was excited to not feel sick every morning! Sadly, it didn't work. Could I be sensitive to something else in milk other than lactose? Or could it be that the lactose is still making me sick despite the added lactase enzyme in Lactaid milk? I'm not so worried about the morning coffee (I can switch to rice or soy milk), but I do love cheese and yogurt, I don't want to have to stay away from them! Anyone else have this problem? Is it related to the fibro, or do I just have really, really bad luck with my body? Thanks in advance and sorry I wrote such a long post!
