Yes: That is a possibility- there are other possibilities as well. Was this a first time occurence or does it occur repeatedly with ingestion of milk and dairy products.? Try doing without milk and dairy for a week or two and see what happens. A specialist can do testing for lactose intolerance if you want to be sure.
