Whenever I eat a large amount of dairy products of any kind, particularly milk, I get this awful painful feeling internally right below my back...and then I get diarrhea. Could I be lactose intolerant?
Azngangsta answered Thursday August 25 2005, 9:09 pm: Actually I don't think you are. You said "a lot of dairy prodoucts" right? (Sorry, my information is not accurate. I'm doing this from memory. I saw this on an episode of "Good Eats") Well, dairy has, of course, lactose. There is enzimes in your body that breaks down lactose. As you grow older, you loose more of those enzimes, so you will start getting sick from eating too much dairy products. My advice is to go easy on the dairy. Once again, my information isn't too accurate, but its pretty much the same. [ Azngangsta's advice column | Ask Azngangsta A Question ]

I reccomend eating dairy in smaller amounts, or getting those pills lactose intolerant people take before they eat, so they can have dairy. [ Deanimal's advice column | Ask Deanimal A Question ]

The painful feeling is probably your body beggining to fight it off and reject it, and seeing it as a virus, caused the diarrhea to try and get it out quickly.
May be wrong, but I am speaking with a lot of confidence here.
