Try lactaid: Try lactaid pills with your dairy or drink lactaid milk and see if you see a difference. If you do then you most likely do have lactose intolerance. There is also a lactose breath hydrogen test you could do.

Besides Lactaid, there is Dairy Ease for the same purpose. Also, more makers of dairy products are coming out with lactose-free products, e.g. yogurt, ice cream.
