Possible: It is possible. Try taking two lactaid or the generic equivalent with your next glass of milk and see if resolves the symptoms. If it is only milk and not ice cream or any other foods then may be something else and you should see your doctor.

I have blood and mucus in stool, bloating, mouth sores and an itchy rash on my elbows. Are these related? What could it mean?

They may be related: This sounds as if you should be seen by a GI doctor and evaluated in detail as you may be having the onset of an inflammatory bowel condition, and these can also present with skin and mucous membrane findings. See someone asap. Bring a full list of all your symptoms and the time frames in which they occur, along with all medical records. Good luck and best wishes.

Food alllergy: Most people that have significant bloating and have an undiagnosed food allergy. The constant inflammation from this produces toxins that cause gas/bloating. Go to a4m.Com and use physician locator to find a local functional medicine doctor to help you evaluate 1) igg food allergens and 2) gut infection with cdsa, both specialized tests from genova. I had this and figured out was gluten intolerant.

I binged last night. I'm now uncomfortable and feel like I'm having problems pooping now. I'm uncomfortable and bloated. How can I help the bloating and discomfort?

Not uncommon: Drink a lot of fluids and either take a suppository or a laxative such as miralax (polyethylene glycol). Lot of times it will get better on its own. Try the above if you r really uncomfortable. Stay active and eat small portions for the next few days.

Bad digestion: There are several possible considerations for maldigestion. Ibs, celiac sprue, lactose intolerance (e.g. Lactase deficiency) or other food intolerance, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth to name a few. I suggest taking a probiotic supplement to correct any imbalance in intestinal flora and dietary change to a low-fodmaps diet (ibsfree. Net). If not better, see a gastroenterologist.

IBS: Irritable bowel syndrome might be explanatory for recurrent bowel dysfunction in a twenties male. A doctor should be consulted to sort this out. In my experience such chronic symptoms in a young male are often found in extreme sports enthusiasts who have chronic low back pain and who have injured their pelvic girdle joints. Food intolerances and milk lactose intolerance can cause same symptoms.
