Diarrhea/pain ?'s: Onset of abdominal pain with diarrhea can occur with loss of ability to metabolize lactose, allowing lactic acid to cause the symptoms. Try removing all milk or milk containing products from your diet, or consume milk containing supplemental enzymes which will eliminate lactic acid. Small hiatal hernias are usually asymptomatic.
