hiii, does anybody suffer from lactose intolerance at all? i've been feeling like crap lately and i've noticed it's corresponding with my dairy intake. i usually avoid it for a meal or two or for a couple of days but my hyper fixation meal is a skyline 3 way so ive had a lot of dairy for a week and for this same week, ive felt lightheaded and exhausted and nauseous so idk.. maybe i'm overreacting.. i'm also worried its POTs.. help

      Hi lactose intolerance person here, if it's more dietary based symptoms in relation to dairy that's likely what that is. Though if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask!!

      I have super bad lactose intolerance to the point where I throw up and lactaid doesn't help. I also have gastroparesis and POTS so there's that

      My whole family is lactose intolerant, I figured it out when I was 10. I take lactaid pills and am able to eat anything now.

      There's dairy allergy and there's lactose intolerance. I would get tested to find out which one. Lactose intolerance is actually really rare and dairy allergy is much more common and easy to work with as there's tons of dairy replacements that still have lactose in them. Humans are actually really bad at processing cow milk because it's no where close to human milk. Goats milk is more similar to human milk and our bodies digest it better.

        @Revontulet I think you got it backwards! Lactose intolerance is the common one, dairy allergies are rare.

        @Alux i thought i could only put my tags! i tried to add lactose intolerance to my things but i rarely get on this app. sorry to offend or be rude! maybe this isnt either though and just symptoms of my other stuff, i didn't want to be overreacting or anything or make anyone upset ):

          @novacancy this is absolutely not rude and i know that i can add other tags at least, even if you don’t have the condition it doesn’t hurt to seek input or advice from those that do and it definitely doesn’t take from or invalidate your experiences. you can decide who you want to ask and how many posts u want to make or whatever, i just wanted to suggest you ask those communities because they may have better input for you / you may reach more folks with lactose intolerance and/or POTS
