  • It could indicate that. Try the lactose free kind of milk and see if that makes a difference.

  • Sounds like a lactose intolerance to me. The milk/lactose in yogurt, cheese etc.. is broken down due to how it's made. a lot of people who are lactose intolerant can eat cheese, yogurt etc.. just can't deal well with straight milk. Give Lactaid milk a try, only difference between it and regular milk is an enzyme has been added to help break down the lactose (milk sugar).
