    Default Lactose intolerance or bug??

    hello

    Please can anyone help reassure me? A few hours I had some gas and then really intense cramps very low abdomen and since then I have had 3 bouts of d** which have followed very painful cramps. I took anti-d tablets and tried to eat but have since been to the toilet again so now just sipping water. I haven't drunk milk for a good number of years but have other dairy products such as cheese and yoghurt and desserts and never have an issue. I had some of a blac forest gateau though at lunchtime today which was wry rich and full of xream. Could it has been that? In worrying because a few people in my university who I am in close proximity to have had upset stomachs and /or v** in the last week or so and I'm really scared I might have it and then might v* too

    Very panicky and now my body is aching too like my back and groin area!

    Please help, I don't want to be sick! I'll do anything to avoid it

    I get similar symptoms when I have milk products sometimes. I was lactose intolerant as a child when I had an issue with anxiety, then when the anxiety went away the intolerance went with it. There were only certain things I couldnt eat. Now since my anxiety has picked back up, I find more foods hard to handle. No more ice cream, cheesecake or frozen yogurt. I can have cereal with milk and eat yogurt, cheeses and thats all fine.

    It could very well be from the ice cream, I would say if it stops soon thats what it is. Usually for me once the trigger is out of my system I feel alot better within a couple hours.

    Thank you, it is a little reassuring to hear that.
    I really hope it is nothing else. I have had a bit of nausea with the cramps but I think this is also anxiety about being sick.

    Trying to just relax and calm myself but I am worried to sleep in case it worsens during the night or tomorrow !

    My son and husband have issues with lactose and your symptoms sound very similar to the two of them. Given that you haven't had milk in so long I think it would be coincidental to have a bug the same day as having milk after so long. Try to relax, I'm sure you're fine!
