Hi Jane, I have sufferred from severe osophegus reflux disease since I was around 11 years old I have been hospitalised with it

I was originally told the illness I had was
Tapanui flu/M.E, or stress then was told it was fibro myalgia and now over 101 different incorrect diagnosises later at the age of 28 I changed doctors yet again I found out I am badly lactose intolerant. Now at 29 nearly 30 I have found that due to being severly lactose intolerant that this can indeed cause osophegus problems.

Also my sister in laws best friend was hospitalised even had her appendix removed because of stomach cramps and all the time it was lactose intolerance.

I don't know about your country but over here lactose sugars from milk are in everything from confectionary through to processed meats, I.e sausages, ham glazings and bread, even in baked beans.

Find out if you are lactose intolerant with a special blood test from your blood bank or medical testing blood lab ask your doctor for a referral. The test takes about two hours while you wait for the next test and have a drink of lactose etc,
its worth it to solve the problem.

If you are lactose intolerant don't expect to see instant results from cutting it out of your diet.
It takes ages to get the lactose out of your system completley, though I have just eaten a custard square yesturday and am suffering for it right now. I never realised just how much lactose can affect you even causing pain right through to my back from my chest, vomitting, acid reflux severe stomach pain etc, but it does as I have had all of these symptoms for years and find they start to show up a little bit everytime I stray from my diet.

Sometimes lactose intolerance can be hereditary but sometimes if you are strict with your lactose free diet the body seems to repair itself.
As many return to dairy after years off of it.

One thing to be careful of is lack of calcium absorbtion from throwing up from a milk free diet. I have now found out that I also have a bone disease probably due to this.

Many farmers I know believe that due to no other animal drinking the milk of another animal that we are not meant to have milk anyway.

Hope this helps you take care
