Lactose intolerance. Milk problems can be confusing, because you could either have a milk allergy or lactose intolerance. Lactose intolerance is an inability to digest lactose (milk sugar) due to deficiency of lactase (enzyme to digest lactose) which leads to cramping, gas and diarrhea. Allergy to milk is due to making ige antibody to milk - exposure to milk proteins (not lactose) cause hives, cramps, diarrhea, etc.
Milk intolerence. Abdominal cramps, bloating, gas are usually due to milk intolerance. About 20% of people in this country have milk intolerance. Symptoms depend on quantity of milk ingested. About 3% of children have milk allergy. Even small amount of milk can cause or aggravate cough, wheezing, hives, itching, diarrhea etc. Keeping a diary of symptoms can help the diagnosis. Allergy evaluation will be helpful.
Milk allergy/intoler. Gas is more likely due to milk or lactose intolerance. A large glass of milk, buttermilk or even yogurt can cause gas or bloating and gurgling in the abdomen. Cheese, except aged cheese, can also cause intolerance. Allergic reactions can come faster and may include hives, nasal and chest symptoms soon after ingesting milk products. There is lot of confusion about this subject.
No. Milk allergy manifests as hives, itching, worsening eczema, vomiting, diarrhea, anaphylaxis, occasionally as bloody stools in newborns and rarely as "pneumonia" as seen in heiner's syndrome. Milk allergy should not cause joint symptoms.
No. No I've never heard or seen that happen. Gas would be more a part of your GI system not your joints.
Allergy. Simple answer, "no". Check with pcp for other causes.
