Well this is me down to a "T". I ran out of my A2 milk here at work today and decided to have my morning teas and coffee with the standard milk they normally get (A1). After lunch, I came back and felt suddenly quite spaced out and hot. I thought that perhaps the lunch was off but it was piping hot and freshly made. I thought about the wheat I'd ingested over the weekend that also leaves me 'spacey'... but I didn't think about the milk, until I felt nauseous and burpy. I found this article and discovered the opioid link, and like wheat, this is what triggers for me that brain fog, spacey feeling.
I'm feeling a little more alert now, but it's interesting how oddly sensitive we can all be.
Incidentally, I don't get 'spacey' when eating a slice of normal A1 cheese. Why?
