Slightly lactose intolerant. Ate too much pasta & cheese today, I also ate too much chocolate. So I have a stomach ache.. Will an enema ease the ache?

Slightly lactose intolerant. Ate too much pasta & cheese today, I also ate too much chocolate. So I have a stomach ache.. Will an enema ease the ache?

No: Lactose intolerance is the result of missing the enzyme on the lining of your intestine that breaks down the lactose sugar. The undigested sugar passes into the colon where the colon's bacteria metabolize it, producing gases and free fatty acids that pull water into the intestine, resulting in diarrhea. An enema would only make that worse. ...Read more
