A couple of weeks ago or so, I noticed that I started having bad gas in the afternoons and noticeable bloating by the end of the night. I haven't been diagnosed with anything, but I am thinking that it may, if possible, be a sudden lactose issue.
Every morning from about nine to ten thirty during work days I slowly drink a cup of coffee (a very dark roast) with about one or two tablespoons of milk and some sugar. Around one or two, I begin to have very bad gas - rotten egg smells and some slight abdominal pain, but nothing severe. I don't really notice this on weekends or at any other time of day, except occasionally in the evenings. However, there is significant, noticeable bloating of my stomach at night. I can see a visible difference from when I go to bed to when I wake up in the morning.
I have purchased lactate/dairy helper pills and take those when I am going to be consuming a lot of dairy since I imagine that's the issue. Could it be anything else? Is this something I should have diagnosed? If I go for a week and eliminate all dairy possible, will that be enough time to see a noticeable difference?View Thread
