Some of my favourite foods have always been dairy ones. If it was possible to survive just on yoghurt, I probably would do it. Whilst drinking milk and eating cheese.
It pains me to think that I might be lactose intolerant.
Last night I had another round of backpain and nausea which is just like backpain I’ve had before. It was so bad it woke me up and kept me awake all night. Every time so far it’s been random – I couldn’t figure out why and felt too bad to sort it out. Last night I finally googled the symptoms, even though I am aware that googling medical symptoms pretty much always tells me that I am about to die. Throwing together the random symptoms I was experiencing I ended up immediately on lactose intolerance and then on the rarer symptoms which can be backpain.
I’d love to say this was just a one-off occasion, but I’ve recently subconsciously cut down on yoghurt, as well as noticed several times that eating yoghurt late in the evening or on an empty stomach causes a mild upset stomach. Last night I had far too much ice cream on an empty stomach so the symptoms were probably much worse than otherwise.
Currently I am too busy to properly look into it more and do the self testing some of the sites have recommended. I am imagining work to slow down towards the end of the month and will then experiment with self testing and trying to figure this out.
I hope it was just a flukey coincidence.
