Everytime I drink milk my stomach hurts. What could be wrong?

Lactose intolerant? It is possible that you may be one of those who lack an enzyme which breaks down a sugar in milk called lactose. Those people can have stomach pain or bowel problems after eating dairy. Milk is not a necessary part of the diet, so you can either just avoid dairy, or see your doctor for other alternatives. Good luck.
