Default dairy/cheese makes tics/ocd way worse?

Hey everyone, just wondering if anyone out has noticed if dairy/cheese makes their ocd/tics worse.

I'm 36 years old and I've had ocd/tics since I was about 8 years old, along with severe panic that's associated with the "what if" of whatever I'm obsessing about at the time.

It took me a while, but I discovered that when I lay off of cheese and dairy the ocd is much milder.

I also discovered wheat makes me lethargic and extremely irritable. I did an elimination diet for 5 days...not too long...but I felt great. I could even have caffeine without having my ocd flare up.

It's just hard for me to stay away from wheat and dairy all the time...since that's pretty much what all delicious food consists of in my opinion lol.

But I wonder if I could slowly get off my meds if I were able to stay off the allergen foods...or at least lower them.

Anyone with a similar experience with food allergens causing ocd flare ups?
