Am lactose intolerant-have to limit dairy. However, my stomach hurts the same amount when drinking ALT to milk vs reg milk. Could it be something else?

In brief: Maybe also IBS.

An estimated one-fourth of patients with irritable bowel syndrome (ibs) also are lactose intolerant.
Unpleasant symptoms, such as bloating, gas, diarrhea or constipation can result from irritable bowel syndrome as well as lactose intolerance. Eating smaller meals, reducing stress and avoiding foods known to irritate the stomach lining, such as rye, barley, caffeine and/or alcohol. Consult doctor

In brief: See below...

Lactose intolerance can be seen in association with a number of other GI diseases.
A commonly overlooked one is the association of lactose intolerance and celiac disease. Consider discussing celiac testing with your doctor to see if it might be appropriate with your symptoms.
