my oldest was for a time.  She just got gassy and cramps.  For a year I gave her no dairy other than yougurt.  I gave her rice milk at meals.  She was fine after about a year, just yesterday she drank about a half gallon of milk (she is 17) and had no issues.

DD is. Stomach bloat, major gas, diarrhea alternating with constipation, and slow weight gain are/were the problems DD has. Eliminating dairy products over the past 1.5 years (she is 3 now) has eliminated her symptoms.

I am also lactose intolerant, have been all my life. Although over the years I have been able to start consuming some dairy. I can have a glass of milk here or there without the symptoms, but generally stay away from dairy.

The past 3 nights my daughter has gotten up in the middle of the night either throwing up or gagging. The past two nights she has drank milk right before dinner about a half hour after she doesn't feel good and goes to sleep and sleeps through the night.

That doesnt sound like intolerance to me.  Its always in the guts, not the tummy.

Eliminate the milk and see how she does. Does she drink milk any other time of day and have symptoms? If she has milk any other time of day and does not have any symptoms, it likely isn't an intolerance or allergy.

Lactose intolerance can cause vomiting. But if she is drinking milk any other time of day and has no symptoms, then I agree it's not likely an intolerance or allergy.

She has it with cereal but she doesn't drink it. I don't know what to think it is from.

The milk absorbs into the cereal. I would still cut out the milk and see how she does. There may be other symptoms that you're not noticing right off. The vomiting could just be a new symptom as it doesn't always happen, but is more obvious. If she's old enough, I would start asking her if her stomach is bothering her. If she's having trouble going to the bathroom. Your best bet would be to take her to a doctor.
