Possibly: If this continues and is consistent with milk and milk products it is possible you have become lactose intolerant (not unusual at your age). Try lactaid milk to see if symptoms improve. If symptoms with other foods or not better with Lactaid milk and if losing weight then consider other conditions like celiac disease
