I've been doing a 80/20 paleo since half a year now. Since a few weeks I notice some strange things: last week I threw up after I had a party, with a lot of non-paleo products, like beer, wine & camembert (white soft cheese). I thought it was just the amount of alcohol which made me throw up, 6 or 7 glasses; I never went beyond 5.
The week before I had a few unpleasant evenings, bloated and feeling sick, and the common denominators were red wine and milk products (full fat organic yoghurt, camembert, ice cream). After a few days, I tested my tolerance level of milk products by eating a whole camembert, with no problems at all. And I had some beer without cheese, no problemo.
Yesterday again. I had stomach problems all day, I thought it was the whole beef heart I ate the day before, or maybe it was too spicy (a whole red pepper went into it, including some chilli). I had some candy (I tend to eating non-paleo things every now and then, just to keep my body used to it) and 1,5 glass of wine, and immediately I felt sick, headache, I was nauseous, my heart beat became loud and fast, and I 'slept' with a bucket beside my bed. At the moment I'm still not feeling well, and I checked the candy, it had yoghurt in it..
TL;DR: does anyone have experience with problems when combining milk producs & wine/alcohol? What could be the reason for it? Why can i enjoy one kind without problems and throw up if I combine it?

Alcohol can be a stron trigger of leaky gut(certainly was for me). Similar to this guy http://paleohacks.com/questions/112190/lactose-and-coffee-together-causing-digestive-issues/115918#115918

Can I share a joke with you or is it going to be too mean of me?
If it is a little too mean, let me know and I will delete it.
A guy walks into a store with two empty bottles of rum and a receipt. He says, "You sold me some really bad rum. I want my money back!" The store manager asks, "What do you mean, you want your money back? How do you know it was bad?" The guy answers, "How do I know? I drank two bottles last night and threw up."
