Every once in a while, after I laugh long and hard, I lose strength in my hands and even a little in my arms. Does that sound familiar to anyone? [more inside]

I've been having muscle fatigue problems for several years. It's mostly specific to my legs, which rules out Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (according to my doctor).
Recently, I tried eliminating various categories of food from my diet again, because I've had problems with certain things before. When I mostly eliminated cow's milk from my diet (I think I slipped once and accidentally had some ice cream), the problem mostly disappeared. Last night, I had a big mug of my friend's real hot chocolate, which she makes with milk for that extra unhealthfulness. Today, I could barely operate the clutch in my car. My doctor says that he's never heard of a connection like that before. Could a protien in milk be causing muscle fatigue in a particular part of my body? [more inside]
