Lactose intolerance?: Lactose breath testing (objective) or a clinical response to lactase enzyme supplements ;/or milk avoidance (subjective decline in the gassiness & diarrhea associated with ingesting lactose) may clarify your concern. Bleeding, weight loss, significant tenderness is not lactose intolerance, for which (among other manifestations) formal evaluation is warranted.
