Stomach pain: Your pain is a concern. Please see your doc. He/she may order a colonoscopy to make sure all is well there. A bowel movement each a.m. is otherwise is likely fine but your doc will tell you about that too. Peace and good health.

A member asked:

Why do I get stomach pain when I consume dairy products?

1 doctor answer5 doctors weighed in

Dairy products-pain: Some ethnic groups, older people, & people who take antibiotics often may have a condition of "lactose intolerance", i.e., they lack (to varying degrees) the enzyme that breaks down milk sugar so it is digestible. Those who lack enzyme develop bloating, gas, diarrhea. Lactaid/dairy ease tablets provide this enzyme; also have pre-treated milk. Some ice creams are "lactose free".

Try these products whenever you eat/drink dairy products. If no relief, see your doc for evaluation

Since stomachs already have lots of acid, do sour foods really cause stomach pain?

Not usually unless..: You are correct..Your healthy stomach has powerfull acid and thus adding sour foods here and there is not a big deal. But, if you have problems such as ulcers, gastritis etc..Which may be from hypersecretion of acid (more than usual) to start with, then adding acidic foods (sour) may/more likely cause stomach upset/trouble for you. If u have problem with sour stomach, consult doc.. Good luck..
