In brief: More lactose in IC?

Sounds like you might have lactose intolerance.
And it sounds like your ice cream has more lactose in those 4-5 spoonfuls than a glass of milk. Perhaps your milk is reduced lactose. Ask your parents/guardian about different options for dairy. Pay attention to what you eat & how you feel. If persists, go see Family Doc who may refer you to Gastroenterologist.
