Does lactose intolerance cause stomach ache and backache?

51 yr old female. I had a painful stomach and lower back pain attack lasted about 1/2 hour went down right side and groin and leg. Severe pain and diarrhea. Nausea. not directly after eating. 2 days later same but across whole torso and down my spine/back felt like back labor. Lasted about 1/2 hour. After eating Nausea Last few days empty stomach aches until i eat. Do take a probiotic. Just started thyroid medication. Could this be lactose intolerance or a probiotic issue.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
I don't think it is lactose intolerance, but you can try to eliminate it from food yourself to see what happens.
I think it is from thyroid medications you are taking.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
