You experience bloating, gas, sore stomach, stomach pain in general as well as diarrhoea. You're unable to digest milk sugars from dairy products.
One of the things my friends complain about is a very sore stomach.
I'm lactose intolerant...you go to the toilet very soon after consuming milk and anything with milk -coffee, hot chocolate...

The best way to get properly diagnosed is to see a gastro specialist. My GP strongly suspected I was lactose intolerant when I told him about my symptoms (bloating, gas, stomach cramps etc). I had a colonoscopy done which found a couple of other gastric problems that could be managed with a change to my diet. Every now and again I'll veer off it, but I pay in the end!! I switched to soy milk in my coffee and have Zymil milk on my cereal which is really nice. Mandy E.
I used to get a running nose, bad Sinuses and very itchy skin. These symptoms were never picked up by my Dr as a food intolerance. I had to go and get the tests done myself.
I have never much enjoyed drinking milk even as a child, I found it very mucilaginous and snotty to drink, possibly my body telling me something.
Half the world is lactose intolerant
Even adult cows can not drink milk!
