i am wondering if I have this...I have frequently extreme intestinal gas, some gas cramping and bloating and although my bowel movements are regular, lately I have been having mainly small, hard stools. No other symptoms other than occasional mild heartburn and I've had a normal abdominal ultrasound and negative celiac test. I've been keeping a food diary and milk and butter seem to be be the only possible triggers. However, I don't seem to have as much of a problem with yoghurt. I find the symptoms improve greatly after a few days if I eliminate all dairy except for yoghurt. Is it common to be sensitive to some dairy products, but not others? Also, I'm in my early 40's...why would this issue be coming up so late in life? What is the appropriate lab test for lactose intolerance and how accurate is it? Thanks for any and all advice.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
