Stomach pain and bloating for two days now after drinking milk, especially in the lower left side of the abdomen.

Intolerant?: The timing and nature of the symptoms are not consistent with antibody mediated milk allergy. More likely is lactose intolerance (if, in fact, related to milk ingestion). Do you frequently have bloating or discomfort after eating dairy? A trial of complete elimination from the diet is the best test for this.
