Dairy--both cow and goat milk--cause strange, nervous-system-based reactions in my body. Does anyone share these symptoms or have an idea why these types of things would happen?
-Peripheral neuropathy (numbness in hands, feet, and mouth, appearing the next day and lasting several days)
-Very sluggish brain (hard to make connections, talk, do simple tasks)
-Slow-moving, uncoordinated body (hard to just do anything besides nothing!)
I have inflammation issues and nervous system issues that I think were caused by years of large gluten consumption before I knew gluten was a serious problem for me. I'm thinking cross-reactivity....Maybe my body sees casein as the same thing as gluten. I thought goat milk might be different for me, but after trying goat milk and cheese yesterday, here I am feeling the effects today. I went off cow milk about 6 months ago (after having consumed dairy regularly for years) and NEVER TOUCHED IT AGAIN because I had so much relief from rather severe, constant, life-limiting symptoms.
Who else has nervous system responses rather than gastrointestinal responses to dairy or other foods?

Casein may be just as bad as gluten in your case...
