i believe i have developed lactose intolerence. it started around 6 mths ago. first just the cramping, then belching then distended stomach will horrible gas. i avoided dairy when finally pinpointing the cause. if i want to eat dairy i take the supplements. depends on what type of dairy as to the amount i have to take. my question is this past week i have felt so bloated and uncomfortable. i did eat small amount of dairy earlier in the week..wo meds...then if i ate anymore later i took meds...but i have gotten no relief this week. ive had terrible gas , which will normally last a day or 2 then ill feel better and my stomach will go down...but ihv had no relief i just feel so bloated and uncomfortable could i hv food allergies also or celiec disease also? is there a prescription medicine for lactose intollerance?
