I used to be obsessed with raw oatmeal with milk. Now oats seem to give me gas and cause intestinal distress. Is it possible that these are related?

In brief: Yes
Oatmeal contains high amt of soluble fiber which causes gas when broken down in the intestines.
Milk can also contribute if you haven't consumed milk for a while and are now deficient in the lactase enzyme.
